5 Money-Making Tips For Girls Who Need A Little Extra Cash To Spend On Christmas Gifts

Christmas is just a month away and with the joy of the holiday season comes the stress of finances and finding the perfect gift. If you find yourself needing a few extra bucks this Christmas, try these five money-making methods to add some bulk to your budget.

1. Donate plasma.

For an hour out of your day, you can save a life and earn some cash, up to $75 in some locations. Be a hero and get paid.

2. Clean out your closet.

Take your old prom dresses to a consignment shop, or sell clothes on Facebook or Instagram. You can also utilize clothes-selling platforms such as Poshmark and Threadup.

3. Change your change.

I know you have a jar of coins or at least the cup holder in your car is full of quarters, nickels, dimes, and pennies. Utilize this money by rolling it and taking it to the bank to plump up your bank account. You'd be surprised how much money you have just riding around in that cup holder.

4. Get crafty.

Are you a gifted painter, artist, or carpenter? Build or paint something to sell online. Items like hand-painted Christmas ornaments or home decor are always popular.

5. Sell photos.

There are many websites such as Shuttershock that pay you every time someone downloads your content. Simply create an account and submit photos to start earning.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
