Why Not Have Your Teens Earn Extra Money at Home This Summer So YOU Can Take a Breather?!

If you want to relax a bit, then here are some ways your teens can earn extra money at home in their spare time.

And YOU can take a much deserved break!

Here Are 10 Ways My Own Teens Earn Extra Money at Home Over the Summer:

1)Wash Windows

Who has the time any more to wash windows? I know I don't!

That's why I happily pay my teens to do the dirty work!

2) Clean Out the Attic or Basement

Isn't it amazing how much stuff you can accumulate? Most homes are stuffed to the roof tops with junk!

Remember, a cluttered home is a cluttered mind!

3) Mow the Lawn

This may seem obvious - but I'm always AMAZED at how many dads I see mowing their lawns...instead of Johnny Junior!

4) Odd Painting Jobs

Got fences? This is WELL worth paying for!

5) Pool Guy

If you have a pool or jacuzzi, you KNOW that it takes WORK to keep it clean.

6) Brush Clearing

My mother-in-law is always on the look out for strong, reliable teens who want to earn extra money clearing away brush and debri.

Matthew, my 12 year old, just made $20 bucks for a few hours work!

7) Garden Tilling

Every spring and fall, I hire my son Tony to till the vegetable garden. It's an easy way to earn extra money at home or even around the neighborhood.

8) Bookkeeping

This is not only a great way to earn extra money at home, but an invaluable and useful skill to learn. That is - if you're feeling brave with the bills!

9) Landscaping projects

Are you dreaming of that tea rose garden...or raised flower bed...or small gold fish pond?

Then break out the shovels and picks and start beautifying your yard!

10) Artist

Do you have an artistic or talented teen? Encourage her to advertise her talents and draw, photograph, or sketch portraits to earn extra money at home.

I know of an 18 year old girl who colors horse portraits for extra cash. Or check out this way to earn extra money at home writing articles for teens as young as 13
