-Ask your parents nicely if they’re willing to pay you an allowance for folding the laundry or dusting the furniture.
-Ask around your neighborhood if anyone wants their lawn spruced up for a small fee. Find out which areas needs mowing and which should be strictly avoided.
-You can get a lot more cash if you offer to rake up and remove the leaves before you mow the lawn.
-Ice-cold lemonade is great in the summer, but switch it to hot chocolate when autumn and winter roll around. Set reasonable prices and be sure to keep your money in a secure place like a lockbox or money belt.
-You might sell cookies individually or bundle them for a lower price. You can even pair them with your lemonade or hot cocoa.
-Convert books, toys, clothes, or other items you no longer use into money instead of wastefully throwing them away.
-If you’re not confident enough in your negotiating and selling skills, head to your nearest consignment store or thrift shop and let them act on your behalf.
-Make and sell products like beaded jewelry, wind chimes from old keys, bookmarks, and garden decorations to name a few.
-Use your skills and talents in this or that subject to your advantage by teaching other kids in exchange for a fee.
-Whether you’re doing it for someone who simply doesn’t know how or perhaps they’re a busy adult without the time to spare, you can upload pictures saved in their camera to their laptop as a backup.
-Ask your parents, friends, and classmates if they know someone who’s interested in joining Facebook but don’t have the time or knowledge to set it up. Tell them you’re willing to do it for a reasonable price!
-Game builder websites such as Stencyl, Andromo, and QuickAppNinja can help you with their user-friendly software.
-Do inform your parents and ask their permission first. Don’t set unfair rates. Be reasonable with your pricing. Do business with people you and your family know and trust. Don’t agree to do a job you cannot do. Know your own skills and limits.
