Every student in college life has a goal to earn money side by side without depending on the family. Many of the students want to earn money even if they are rich from their background. They think that they are good enough to understand the lifestyle and they wanted to create something from their own shoulder.
Very rare students totally depend on their parents because they don’t want to make life complicated with their studies. Honestly, when I was in college I tried to make money from different sources and achieved it. It feels good when you earn something from your own and you don’t feel that you have a burden for something on your head. It is because you earned money and you knows that what are your basic wants and needs at the time of student life.
Most importantly, when you started earning no matter if it’s part time or full time. You will get the actual value of money and worth. It’s very easy to ask everytime from parents hard earned money that you need it for your small-small expenses. And sometimes it feels very bad to ask when you are getting older and you the value.
So, I personally feel that try to earn money when you are in college life and stop asking for money from your parents about small things. Anyway, they will support you from everywhere but I feel it’s your responsibility to support them back.
I have marked 10 important points below to earn money while you are in college.

#Sell sports activities tickets – In every school and college, sports are available. If you are not a huge fan of sports like football or basketball still you can earn money by selling tickets. It depends on your college and school conditions. If they allow you to sell sports events tickets, you can check out the website like StubHub and find out the if there is something related to ticket exchange.
#Housesitting – Housesitting is more popular in the summer season. This is basically when people go out on beaches or tours but they don’t have someone to take care of their pets like dogs, cats etc. Many pets don’t go on vacations. So the house owner needs someone to take care of their food, cleaning, water dish filled on regular basis or sometimes at least once per day. On the other hand, some people wants their house for a monitoring purpose like security. Probably they don’t want you to do kung fu but they want you to call the police or fire department if something wrong happens. It likes to monitor everything for safety purpose.
#Sell your old things and textbooks – Move out your old stuff if you don’t really need it. There are so many useless things you will find in your home which you don’t use anymore. Sell your old textbooks which you don’t read or not use anymore. Sometimes we keep the book for future purpose but ask yourself. How often you use them?
At the end of semester or college take out your all books either go the college bookstore to sell or find out a website such as textbooks.com, chegg.com.
#Parttime Internship – When I was in college I did an internship for the good organisation. It was not all about to make resume stronger but I earned good money. Go to your placement department in college and ask the HR or consultant if they have any internship available. Search for paid internship on internships.com or interqueen.com
