If student loans are a problem enroll in a class at your local community college that will help for a masters or any other credentials for your current job. One class is all it takes to defer the loans again. My major hasn't paid anything on his for 6 years doing this every quarter and he's an optometrist. He is just stalling it out until his next contract comes up to get the balance paid off by the army. Also the National Gaurd has some good Student loan repayment insentives right now in my state, don't know about yours but it is always worth checking.
At least you have enough to meet your families immediate needs and have a JOB. Many are worse off than that. I have made a bunch of extra cash recently writing resumes and helping people get Govt jobs. (Resumes for govt jobs have to be a particular way for some reason to even have a chance of getting looked at for an interview.) I charge $100 per resume on Liveperson.com but have been doing stuff for trade here and there recently to help out people with the economic woes.
I hope you consider investigating the student loan solution I posed to you, taking a 3 hour class at night 2 or 3 days a week is better than a second job for time at least.
I noticed no Joes up in that list of collections, I don't collect much else (magic the gathering and comic nerd here) I would say vintage is much harder to replace, and depending on how rough it is getting modern SW would probably be the easiest to get back, I think legends would just be too much of a loss. But if you decide to liquidate your MLs than I would be glad to help you out as fairly as I can.

I am fortunate to have a job and be able to meet our obligations. We just are having a really tough month, some unexpected surprises. We also recently started daycare for our son and it is expensive. Just trying to learn how to live on a new, smaller budget.
After this month we should be okay, its just not fun.

Also, take a look around your house. Is there any other stuff you could sell to make a bit of money to help out?
Lastly, if your hand was forced, you could possibly consolidate your student loans to make the payments lower. I did that very thing a couple years ago and reduced my payment by about $75 a month.
Best of luck in your hardship, man.

Regarding classes to defer student loans, you usually have to be half-time. For graduate level studies you would need 6 hours in most cases.
