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.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
