Believe it or not, you could make some extra cash during Black Friday week by simply offering babysitting services.
Tons of people want to take advantage of those crazy Black Friday Sales; the problem is that in recent years those sales occur at night until early morning.
This is when you come in; offering to babysit your friends' kids for a small fee will give them the freedom to shop without their children.
Once you start earning extra cash save it away. Deposit it in a bank account or in a cash jar (pickle jar in my house) until the money is needed.
Again, depending on how hard you work at it the more cash you will get for Christmas.
Starting early is the key to how much money you can get so make a plan and make it happen.
You don't have to leave your home or get a part-time job to make extra cash when you can earn it from home or when you shop.
