I love finding creative ways to make extra money.
When I was in middle school, I sold gum out of my locker. I would buy cases on the cheap and sell it by the pack. I made a killing ... Well, at least it was good money for a 7th grader.
Magic shows, car washes, Christmas cards and babysitting were all part of my money making experience.
The ingenuity of people making money today on the internet is inspiring. My kids are learning at an early age how to present themselves, help people and make money. I love it.
This list contains some old standbys, like pet sitting and selling your old stuff on Craigslist.
There are also some clever ideas, like data entry, detailing cars and capitalizing on events in town.
Check them out. You might find an idea to make a little extra money this weekend. You also might find an idea for the kids. Never too early to start.
