The hype is real and we hear you – you want to go to Sound On Festival but you’re not sure if you can afford it.
Saving money is easier than you think. Most of the time it’s as simple as taking money you’d normally spend on something else, and putting that money in a savings account instead.
But if impulse control isn’t exactly your strength, we’ve put together a few ideas for you to try out.
1. Put aside your pocket money
If you’re lucky enough to get pocket money from your parents (whether it’s for chores, helping out around the house, or you’re just lucky!), try putting the money aside straight away to save instead it up. It might feel difficult to do at first, but after a while you’ll be chuffed with how much you manage to save.
2. Hold a neighbourhood car wash
It’s time to get stuck into some good ol’ fashioned cleaning with this one! Not only will you be able to earn some quick cash but you’ll get to be outside enjoying the sunshine while you do it. So grab some friends, a bit of elbow grease and get stuck in!
3. Become a dog walker
This one’s the perfect combination of saving money and getting in your daily exercise. You can choose to go before or after school, or even on the weekend. Ask your neighbours or put up flyers in your local community offering dog walking services. Who could resist such a cute and fluffy opportunity?
4. Front lawn bake sale
It’s time to put those food technology lessons to the test! And there are heaps of things you could do, like selling homemade lemonade, fresh-baked cookies, or homemade jams – all from the convenience of your front lawn. You could even try selling extra fruit from your backyard lemon tree.
5. Ditch those old textbooks
Been hanging on to some old school textbooks you don’t need anymore? There are plenty of people who might find them more useful than being stuck on your study bookshelf getting dusty. If you ask your parents they might be able to help you find somewhere to sell them online or around your local community.
6. Take on extra jobs around the house
You could offer to do the family laundry, clean out the garage or shed, or even make dinner a couple of times a week. It’s an easy way to save extra coin and get in your parents’ good books!
7. Digitise old family photos for your relatives
If you know someone with a stack of printed photos that need to be copied onto their computer, why not offer to do it for them for a small fee? All you need is scanner!
