4 Ways to Double Your Dollars This Summer

The sunny days of summer bring the perfect opportunity for family fun. Sometimes all it takes is one sight of your kids’ listless eyes zoned out in front of the TV to realize that everyone could use a little vacation time. But if you’re a single mom like me, a non-stop schedule and tight budget can really place a damper on those desires. Fortunately, it only takes a bit of planning and a small amount of time to start building up that extra cash. Here are four easy tips that you can do in your spare time to help start building up your getaway stash.


Nab a Freebie

Whether it’s a new desk or patio chair, you can find that and much more for free by doing a little searching online. There are sites out there where individuals are willing to give up items they no longer have use for free! The only money spent here is for the gas to pick your item up.


Survey Your Cash Flow

Get paid for sharing your opinion with Online survey sites. Websites like Free Paid Surveys or Opinion Place give you the chance to sign up, take surveys and get paid. It’s that easy. Of course paid surveys won’t add up to the amount of a part-time job, but every little bit helps, right?

Doggie Camp

If you love dogs this will be far more fun than work. Offering a boarding service for dogs is an easy way to put aside some cash. Not only that, but people will love you for it because many people would much prefer to leave their pet in a loving home when they’re away than to leave their pooch at a kennel!


Stop Buying Bottles

Bottled water can seem convenient at first glance, but in fact, it is a quite the opposite. Ounce per ounce, the cost of bottled water is many times more than the cost of a quality water filter. Switching to filtered water is a simple way to help you stack your change while you help to preserve our environment!


So don’t give up on that vacation. With a little searching, finding those extra funds can be a breeze. Try these super easy tips and in no time you’ll be ready to make those beach side dreams come true.
