Octomom Nadya Suleman, facing foreclosure if she can't make a $450,000 balloon mortgage payment next month, spent the weekend hawking her "memorabilia." Items, including eight "little devil" Halloween costumes and an autographed nursing bra, were on sale at a yard sale outside Suleman's Los Angeles County home. "She's struggling right now," her lawyer tells People. "Things have begun to get dire. But several times in the past, just when things got bad, the money comes in. She's hopeful things will work out."

For $10, visitors could have their photo taken with the unwed mom, and for $100, they could be snapped with Suleman and her octuplets, who will turn 2 in January. Suleman—who sat on a couch billed as "the couch where Nadya learned she was having octuplets"—complained about media coverage making her life a farce. "The media has turned me into somebody I wouldn't even want to know," she told the Orange County Register.
