You are about to learn ways to make some money Thanksgiving weekend that are legit and will make you money for sure!

The most significant shopping season is upon us my friends and let’s be real who doesn’t want to make some money this upcoming Thanksgiving Day weekend?

We could all use some extra cash, and if you are smart about it, you can earn some extra money this Black Friday weekend.

Take advantage of these opportunities and earn some money this Thanksgiving weekend by doing some of these ideas below:

How to Make Some Money Thanksgiving Weekend


If you aren’t going out at all and you know some family members or close friends that will benefit from you babysitting do it. Earn some cash and let your friends shop without worrying that their kids in the store.

They can buy their kids gifts, and you can earn some cash during Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday.


Many families in our culture pay to have pasteles made for them and Coquito and this is when most of my family make some money.

Creating pasteles takes a long time, and people will pay about $25 for a dozen, and when you create them, one batch can make up to 100.

When it is time to make pasteles we all help and make tons for the house. The same thing happens with Coquito, and unlike pasteles, it doesn’t take long to make. A bottle of coquito can cost around $20.

I’m not saying you have to go and make these two things, but find out what food or baking good people want, but they don’t have time to bake.

Homemade pumpkin pie? Your delicious stuffing? Is baking cookies your forte?

Find a dish you are good at and sell it. You will be surprised how many people are willing to buy these items to enjoy on Thanksgiving.

Pet sitting

Many families travel or away for a long time and can’t take their pets. If you love pets and are willing to pet sit then Thanksgiving weekend might be your chance to earn a few bucks for a couple of hours or even days, depending on how long they will be away.

If dog sitting is your thing, you could make over $1000 a month doing it. Learn if you have what it takes to dog sitting by clicking here
