Dog Sitting

Most everyone enjoys the company of good old dogs. But, have you ever thought of making a living out of babysitting them?

In the summer, my family friends go on vacation for weeks or even longer and ask myself if I would watch over their dogs at their home. This summer I agreed to watch two households full of dogs.

At these homes, the families ask if I would care for their dog(s); including; feeding, letting them outside, walking, cleaning any messes they make, etc. These families are very kind and also include food for me for the week. In return, I clean their house before they come back from vacation.

I don’t set a charge for the families and accept anything they want to pay me. I’m a poor college kid who enjoys getting new things so money is money to me.

Watching the dogs is not hard either because most dogs warm up to me very easily. I enjoy spoiling them and making sure they are loved at all times.

I believe this job is very ideal for someone with a part-time job or even someone in-between jobs.

I also work at my part-time job while I’m watching these dogs so I’m gaining even more money.

It’s so much easier than babysitting and a lot more relaxed. If you’re an animal lover, I highly recommend asking on your local selling Facebook page if anyone is in search of a dog sitter. You can also ask your friends or coworkers if they are in need of someone. My best connection is my mom since she knows most everyone in town from her work.

I recommend meeting the dogs and previewing the house before agreeing to dog sitting. Sometimes the dogs may not like you and it could turn into a disaster.

Best of luck if you consider taking on this job.

10 Inexpensive Clothing Sites

Being a bargain shopper is something that is in my blood. Both of my parents raised me to make sure I knew how to stretch my dollar. I’m always looking for sales, clearance, or just cheaper stores in general. There are items I believe are worth a little more money but for fast fashion items, I’m not going to Guess or Tommy Hilfiger.

Keep in mind, you are paying for the look not the quality with these items. They are not going to last you all of your life, let alone college. Also, make sure you read reviews on the items that catch your eye. It may not be expensive but you also don’t want to be buying garbage.

1. Forever 21

Let’s get the obvious site out of the way first. Yes, so many people recommend this site or store. There is a reason for that. Most of the clothing is under $20. They carry fast fashion but some pieces are a little bit more unique. If you want to look like everyone else, this is your store.

2.  Boohoo

This is a company over in the UK. It’s completely brilliant. This happens to be my favorite store. I’ve bought shoes, formal dresses, summer clothing, accessories, the whole nine yards. Make sure you chose the correct country to get the right sizes and prices. They are always running sales so check in daily to see if the items you want are on sale.

Amazon has been upping their game with clothing. You can find so many amazing clothing for not a high price.

They are at a higher price point but still worth a look at. There are some affordable items in the sales section. They have such stunning pieces. They are at the higher end of things but you are paying for quality with these garments.

I’ve never purchased from this site but I’ve only even heard good things. Most everything is under $10 so it’s worth a shot to just buy a few things. You won’t be breaking the bank with just giving it a chance.

10. SheIn

I’ve also never ordered anything from this site. It is a wholesale site but this is one that has got so many positive responses. I will most likely be ordering some items from this site in the near future. I recommend looking up recent YouTube reviews that show the good items they got instead of straight from the website. If you guys would like me to do a review on the site please comment telling me I should.
