8 Creative Ways To Earn Money In College

We all know we're broke, but what if there were unique ways to do something about it?

8 Creative Ways To Earn Money In College

College expenses add up quick- especially if you want to enjoy a social and a night out. However, there are several different ways out there to earn a few bucks time from time.

1. Donate plasma

If you get on the right schedule, this can add up quick. You can donate more often then you'd think and get paid for it every time. As a bonus, you get paid even more for your first few visits.

2. Sell your clothes on Poshmark or at Platos

It's time to Marie Kondo your closet and make a profit off it doing so. And believe me, purging clothes feels amazing in the end.

3. Have a subject you're pretty decent at? TUTOR! 

Not only can this turn a quick and easy decent sized profit, but it is also a great addition to your resume.

4. Uber or Lyft

Set your own hours. You can write your expenses off when it comes tax season, and create some hilarious memories along the way.

5. Easy peasy retail jobs

On top of getting paid for one of the easiest jobs to ever exist, you also got a bomb a$ discount on cute clothes. What better job than that?

6. Dog sitting or walking

Pet therapy is 10000% real, so why not make money off it as well?

7. Sell old textbooks

They're only collecting dust in your closet. What are you ever going to use them again?

8. Sell old graphing calculators and iClickers!

These are somethings that college students are always searching for at a discounted rate, but not something we always think about selling.
