That’s right guys!! SUMMER IS COMING and camp is coming too! That means that it’s time to start saving saving saving! We’ve outlined for you three really great ways to start saving and raising money for this upcoming summer.
Odd Jobs = The Big Bucks
It’s true, a lot of random odd jobs can really add up the money. Babysitting, card making, yard work, community service, lemonade stands, and the like can really add up over time.While we know it can be slightly awkward knocking on your neighbor’s doors or asking everyone you know for job, it can be exciting and fun as you begin to find things that you like to do. Some websites even offer free business cards and posters for you to create online and print.
In the meantime, here is a list of odd jobs you can try out:
- Yard Work
- Mother’s Helper
- Card-making for holidays and special occasions
- Taking out neighbor’s trash
- Tutoring younger students
- Car washing
- T-Shirt designer
- Local Newspaper Reporter
Penny Pinch Like There’s No Tomorrow!
This means—stop needlessly spending and save all your money! It may be easier to do this if you go to the bank and open a savings account, you can go at the end of each month and deposit your money into the account, it’ll stay there safe and sound until you’re ready to use it for your big summer trip!
Learning to save your money and keep to your personal goals is an important thing to learn while you are young. The older you get the more money you will earn and the harder it will be to watch your spending. Learning these values is super important when you’re young and what better way to apply this principle than saving toward camp!
Make a Budget
There are some great budget printables online and we highly encourage you to download one and start teaching yourself how to use a budget. This way you can track your expenses and make sure that all the money you earn is actually going into your account and not to those extra Starbucks runs and after-school snacks at the local gas station.
Keep your eye on our social media and blogs, we will be announcing awesome ways you can earn money and more contests for you to enter throughout the year! Remember the goal campers! Camp Tzadi 2018 is going to another incredible summer, we can’t wait to see each of you again and are super excited to see new faces too! We have awesome stuff in store for you and we can’t wait to see you this summer! #Camptzadi2018
