How To Make Money Over Winter Break

This winter break, Bwog is going to work, work, work it out (if we make things right, the sun will shine [not really because we are now in the cold, bleak part of the year]).

Is living in New York expensive? Are general college “necessities” weighing you down? Do you cringe every time you take out your credit card?

Well, we have a post for you! Here are the easiest ways to make money over the long winter break.

  1. Babysit
  2. Shovel
  3. Hit up your summer job
  4. Offer to wrap gifts
  5. Walk dogs
  6. Pet-sit
  7. House-sit
  8. Tutor
  9. Intern (if you’re feeling pre-professional)
  10. Venmo-request people for, I mean, that never paid you back.
  11. Join a Pyramid Multi-Level Marketing Scheme*

If all else fails, start applying for jobs near campus, so you can work during the spring semester.

*Bwog does not recommend MLM. MLM can be dangerous. MLM can also overwork you, utilize your Instagram followers, and suck up all of your time for little to no money.
