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.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
