Science for Youth January 15, 2014 Print Friendly and PDF


So, you've finished your spending plan, but the income side of the equation seems to be a bit lacking. How can you make some extra money? Here are some ideas:

  • Find a part-time job,
  • Work as a babysitter,
  • Mow grass or do yard work around the neighborhood,
  • Help relatives or neighbors with repairs, painting, etc.,
  • Work out an allowance agreement with your parents,
  • Turn a skill you have into a payable job or business: musical instrument, computer skills, etc.

Of course, you can always try spending less and saving more if you find yourself short on cash.
