Are you looking to get some more money in your pocket this summer? Are you saving up for a vacation or just want to have some extra security? See how you can make some extra cash without having to give up too much of your time.
Chances are you know some people taking vacations this summer. Offer to house sit for them. It can be as simple as watering plants, checking the mail, and feeding their pets. Getting a few people lined up who will be willing to give you a little cash for doing some minor chores can add up quickly.
If you are looking to invest a little more time and help others, many parents are looking for tutors to keep their children sharp for the upcoming school year. Once you identity what age range you are comfortable with and a topic you know well, post online that you can be hired as a part time tutor to help their children where they are struggling.
3. Walk Dogs
If you enjoy and get along with dogs, offer your services as a dog walker. This could also be part of house sitting for someone or could be part of their daily routine if they find that they do not have time to squeeze in exercise time for their pets.
4. Be a Lifeguard
If you received training to become a lifeguard, this is the perfect time of year to put that training to good use. Many community pools are in need of lifeguards as the summer begins to move into full swing.
5. Yard Work
As many teens and young adults have learned, doing yard work is an easy way to make quick money. Many people will pay $20 just for others to mow their lawns, not including any additional work you may be compensated for.
6. Child Care
It is also time for parents to start sending their kids to camps. However, many parents are just looking for a way for their children to be cared for while at work. You may be able to offer some of your time to watching their children and doing fun activities with them instead of having to be sent to a pricey camp.
7. Other Ideas
A few other ways you may be able to make extra money include washing cars, selling clothes, shopping for others, and starting a blog.
See how you can put your skills to use to help put some extra money in your pocket while not giving up too much of your summer.
