19. Write a short story or novel.

It has become an easier process for people to self-publish creative works over the years. Just try to make it a best-seller!!!

20. Thrift! Buy and sell your finds and purchases. You could even transform them into something new.

Make some great finds in local thrift stores. Then, sell your discoveries online.

You could also get creative with your finds and make them into something new for your customers. For instance, if you find a cool jacket, why not decorate it with your university's logos? The options are endless.

Good luck building your bank account this summer!
