Top Three Ways For Teens To Make Extra Money This Fall

Updated on December 29, 2016
 

Fall brings new opportunities for teens to make money. With cold weather on the way teens can earn money by helping people get ready for winter. The following are some time-tested ways for teens to earn cash.

Wash windows. With cold weather approaching many people will do a fall clean up. One part of fall clean up that most people do not like to do is to clean their windows. This provides an excellent opportunity for you.

The start up cost for cleaning windows is very small. All you need is a bucket, window cleaning solution, a squeegee and some towels. You might also need a ladder to reach to higher windows.

Many modern homes are equipped with windows that open so that they can be cleaned from the inside. This is great because you won't need to drag a ladder around to clean the windows.

How much should you charge for your services? That depends on you. A fair price can be anywhere from $2.00 - $5.00 a window. Talk it over with the homeowner and see what they are willing to pay.

A second way for teens to make money this fall is to help clean up gardens for winter. As summer ends many plants in the garden dry up and need to be removed. Many gardeners like to add mulch to their gardens in the fall. This is an opportunity for teens to make money.

To get started all you need is a shovel, pruning shears and leaf bags. The homeowner will tell you which plants need cut down and which need to be dug up and removed. When in doubt, ask before doing anything. You don't want to kill someone's prized plants.

A fair price for your work can be negotiated before you start. Don't be afraid to ask for more if you think that your services are worth it.

A third way for teens to make money this fall is by doing yard clean ups. This entails raking leaves and removing branches that fall. It is not hard work but can often take several hours to clean one yard if there are numerous trees.

All that is needed is a rake, a pair of gloves (I like the waterproof gloves) and large leaf bags. If you are going to clean several yards you might wish to invest in a leaf blower. This will make your job a bit easier as you can blow the leaves into a pile before bagging them.

Fall is a great time for enterprising teens to make money.

      I here you! If gas prices keep going up we all may need to find way to earn extra cash. Maybe instead of using the $700 billion dollars to bail out the people that made billions on the way up, the government should cut is a check and we could try "trickle up" economics for a change!
