Not getting any allowance from your parents this summer? Why not put up a small business while you're on idle from school. You'll make your summer a little bit more productive than usual and earn some extra cash at the same time.

Ice Candy or Halo-Halo

Since it's going to be raging hot this summer, why not put up a small stand of ice candy or Halo-Halo in your garage. It's nice to sell it in the afternoon while people are looking for something cold to get through the heat.


Beads and creativity! That's all you need to keep up with this kind of business. Browse through magazines for pegs of earrings, bracelets, or necklaces that you can make. Think out of the box and be creative. Who knows, this might not just be a summer part-time business.

Garage Sale

You've done spring-cleaning and don't know where to put your junk. Set up a garage sale with your friends and put a prize on your old stuff. You not only get to get rid of your old things and have more space in your room but also earn from them as well.

Summer Stuff

Ask your mom to accompany you to 168 or Greenhills to buy summer essentials like dresses and shades. Send out fliers after Sunday Mass about your sale in your backyard. If you don't like the hassle of putting up a mini store, you can sell them online and prepare to be bombarded with inquiries through text and email.
