debit card of some sort to get the money from paypal. I mean, how would that work? Would paypal cut me a check? Then I'd have to pay someone to cash it for me. My wife has control of the only bank account we had.

Can you provide a link or recommend one?

NetSpend, Walmart Money Card, US Money/Modern Cash. All of them are Visa/Mastercard based and charge between $0 and $5 a month fee, usually $0 for transfers/direct deposits/paypal, and $1 to $4 to load the cards with cash.
Bluebird by American Express is free for all of these things, and you can sign up for free online but fewer locations accept American Express based cards.

This service sets up a debit card kind of account.
There are fees - not too bad - for usage. Once the account is set up, people can send money via paypal. Then the recipient simply uses the debit card against the balance.
I personally have not set up an account. Only know about it from someone at another political blog (Balloon Juice) who has personally used it. And was helping someone there do the same.

BUT you have to qualify as a regular user. They will send a check. But only if it matches to a bank account listed. My org could collect the money for you but then we would still have the same problem unless we converted it to a Money pack.

a new bank account just for you. Then you can get a debit card that can be used for purchases too plus it will connect easily to paypal.

You can get a credit union account with a $5 deposit.
