I got an interesting email from a reader recently. She wrote:
My name is Jessica and I’m 21. I’ve been recently engaged and currently my fiance and I are trying to save for a down payment on our first house.
I recently read one of your articles about selling on craigslist, which I found very helpful but it sparked an idea.
I was thinking, since we are trying to save money if we could come up with a list of “money-making” activities to do over a weekend. Like a different project each weekend for the whole summer. So instead of sitting at home, wanting to do something that costs money, we could make a list of activities to choose from that would help us make money to save. Since financials is your thing I was hoping you could help me out.
I like the way Jessica thinks!
I have some thoughts but I’d like to see what suggestions you all can come up with for Jessica too. Please weigh in with your money-making ideas for these soon-to-be newlyweds.
