How To Make Moneyspacer
Tired of asking mom and dad for money? It’s never too early to start making your own buck here and there. It kinda feels good to be able to buy things on your own. Here at Abbey Credit Union, we put our heads together and made this list of fun, money-making activities you can pick up.

Fun Money-Making Activities
1. Wash Cars: Everyone wants a shiny car, but not everyone has the time and money to keep it that way. Load yourself up with a bucket, soap, a sponge, and a towel and give the people in your community the clean car they want at a price they’ll enjoy.

2. House/Dog Sit: Lots of people go on vacation and need a trustworthy person to keep an eye on their house and take care of their pets and won’t mind shelling out a few dollars for the cause. If you do this, be sure you go to the house during daylight hours or bring an adult with you.

3. Tap into Your Creativity: Find something you like to do: bake (with the help of an adult), paint, make jewelry. Sell your goods at local fairs, festivals, or church events. Your parents can help you find the right person to contact about setting up a stand.

4. Landscaping: The possibilities on this one are endless. Rake leaves, pull weeds, mow grass, trim hedges, water the garden, shovel snow, plant flowers, change the birdbath. Don’t limit your skill to just your parents’ house, market yourself to the community with flyers or word-of-mouth and you’ll be in business in no time!

5. Babysit: Love kids? Ask your parents what age is good for you to start babysitting. Contact a trusted family in the community about keeping an eye on their little ones while they run a couple errands or catch a movie. If you keep the kid(s) safe, happy and entertained, you’ll earn the trust of their parents. Making sure the house it tidy when they come home is also a sure fire way to gain confidence in the family. They might even be so happy they’ll tell their friends about you!

6. Help out With the Elderly: Older people need a vibrant, positive person to keep them feeling young. They also could probably use some help around the house. Offer to visit an elderly person in your community for just a few hours a week. Work a little and play a little. Take out the trash, wash the dishes, or vacuum. Afterward, strike up a card game, make macaroni necklaces, or pop in a movie. Not only will they be willing to pay you, but the smile on their face will be more than rewarding.

7. Sell Your Old Toys: You grow out of your toys every year, maybe even faster than that. Chances are good that there’s a kid in your community who would love to have your old treasure. Maybe you could get your folks to run a garage sale or put an ad for your things on Craigslist or eBay.
