Earning pocket money for college students

Pic related.
It's the money tree you don't have.
College is expensive. Without proper financial aid from state, federal, or family assistance, graduating, especially for four year degrees, takes decades of hard work and careful saving.
Assuming you're lucky enough to afford attending a higher level education, after textbooks and other basic needs are met, students often find themselves broke and unable to participate in activities. Money doesn't buy happiness, but it does provide opportunities that the poor don't get.

Before you begin reading this list, realize that the temptation to participate in any illegal activities to earn money will not pay off in the long run. Especially as a student, having a criminal background will only hinder the hard-work put towards furthering your future success. There are plenty of ways to earn money that don't involve lawyers, probation, or Saul Goodman.

Need side money to spend out of pocket as a broke college student?

#1 Donate Plasma
Plasma is in your blood, and if you drink plenty of water, rest, and keep a healthy diet, this is an easy source of spending money. Downsides to donating plasma include irritability fatigue, and scarring. Not just plasma though! You're young and healthy so go ahead and donate blood, hair, sperm, or anything else that medical offices will pay for!

#2 Sell unused/ unwanted items or Offer services Online
Websites such as Ebay and Craiglist can be gold mines for college students looking for pocket change.

#3 Earn Money Online
Be wary of scams such as pyramid schemes, however, sites such as swagbucks, cashcrate, dollar surveys, inboxdollars, steam, naturebucks, zeekrewards (MLM), blogging, TopLine, GiftHulk, Vagex, Mturk, AppRedeem, Treasure Trooper, and Bing Rewards can be easy and valuable means of income.

**#4 Get a Part-time Job
Especially if you were working as a high school student, use the skills and experience you learned there to acquire a local job that works around your class schedule. Excellent jobs for students are those that allow you to study while you're job is slow. Examples include package handling, librarian assistants, or night shift employment.

#5 Learn more about your schools' work-study programs and find out how to qualify

**#6 Avoid Needless Spending!
Sorry, but you're not going to afford to eat at a restaurant every night or be able to go shopping every weekend. Avoid parking tickets and late-fees like the plague. A crucial financial pit of loss is in ordering soft drinks in a drive-through line. Studies show that fast food companies such as McDonald's or Taco Bell earn + 100% revenue on soft drinks. An easy way to save hundreds of dollars is to avoid buying sodas if you aren't going to take advantage of the free refills. A penny saved is a penny earned so learn how to live within your means. Hard-work pays off, no need for a vacation!

#7 Mow lawns, help move furniture, wait tables, volunteer- Just find out what you are good at and advertise it. Help tutor or proofread papers. Do you have a knack for arts and crafts? Sell that to suckers who will pay money for it. If you are good at taking pictures, drift around populated areas and tourist spots and offer to photos. As an artist, offer to draw caricatures. If you have a talent for baking, sell your goods at bake sales at the local church. Put up flyers offering cheap car washes or lawn care. If you are experienced as a babysitter, get your name out there and develop a respectable reputation.

**#8 Find a Job?!
This is critical because of the impact it will have on your future resumes'. Even if it means taking fewer classes (see financial support to find out how many hours absolutely must be taken), any job will be crucial in supporting yourself in the long term. Be careful to avoid over scheduling which will lead to lower test scores AND decreased work performance.

#9 Garage Sale
So no luck selling that extra TV or video games online? Hold a garage sale and get rid of the clutter in your life while also earning cash.

#10 Become a mystery shopper, or participate in market research
Whenever the opportunity arises, market researchers will pay big bucks for test subjects. It's an easy and safe way to earn money while voicing your opinion.

#11 Take advantage of free samples
There are literally hundreds of blogs and sites on the internet providing free samples. Search around for great deals. Avoid the trap of spending extra money on name brands. There's no shame in saving an extra dollar or two by buying generic. Search "freefly"

#12 Sell Aluminum cans or Copper wiring
Places will pay top dollar for each ounce of copper wire you bring to them. See above for rules regarding the legality of your income especially with copper, which is often stolen. Collecting aluminum cans and selling them by the pound is good for the environment and your pocket.

#13 Sell bottled water
Ask any businessman and he'll tell you the importance of location and timing. Buy bottled water in bulk and sell it outside of sports games. People will be thirsty and appreciate the convenience.

**Numbers four and six (eight) are the most critical in maintaining comfort as a student. Stay smart and avoid scams. The internet is a great place to find an area to cash in on, but so is socializing and developing co

nnections locally and on campus. Let your friends and adviser know that you are on the job hunt and looking for ways to earn money.

I was very glad to find an amazing way out to earn with a very reliable referral program from Paperhelp.org service (http://goo.gl/M402F7). The only disadvantage I find with it is that I cannot predict how many people will I invite next month and how much money I will get. Though it is not a problem at all, because I'm not too tired with doing this kind business. Sometimes it brings me even more than I can even expect, because people I invite make their orders twice a month and I get guaranteed %10 for each one.
