Fall Ideas to make money now that are worth looking into…

#75 – Cider Mills Rock!

If you live on the East Coast or in the foothills of California you definitely have stopped at a Cider Mill in the Fall, at some point in your lifetime, for some great tasting Apple Cider.  If there’s a Cider Mill in your area, why not see if they need help at the Mill either selling the Cider, filling the Cider jugs or maybe even harvesting the apples that they make the cider from?  You might not want any Warm Apple Cider until next Fall but what a yummy way to make some extra cash this fall when you really need it!

 #76 – Local Pumpkin Patches or Corn Mazes

Again, if you live anywhere near a rural area, pumpkin patches and corn mazes in the Fall are the norm.  Go see& talk to the owner of your local pumpkin patch or corn maze and ask them if they need help selling tickets, directing traffic or picking the pumpkins.  Some corn mazes have concession stands and sell local goodies to their guests.  And…if you make local goodies, you might also want to see if they will sell some for you.  It’s worth asking…

 #77 – Haunted Houses…how spooky!

Tis’ the season for Haunted Houses.  If you are an actor at heart and LOVE Halloween, what a great part time job for you?!!!  Here in Colorado, there are lots of local haunted houses and they are great fun.  They will be busy from now until the end of October and it’s a great way to make some extra money in the evenings or on weekends.  They may need ticket sellers, parking attendants, traffic directors, actors or concession help…if you aren’t into acting spooking or ghoulish, they might have another need for some help, so ask about all opportunities.  If you love ghosts and ghouls, this might be the perfect part time gig for  you.

#78 – Halloween Costume Stores

They are popping up in every empty storefront in local shopping centers here and are about to be busy…busy…busy.  Again, if you LOVE Halloween, this might be a great part-time job for the next 6 weeks or so.  They will also need help after Halloween selling the costumes at a discount to people who might want to stock up for next year and then they will probably need help boxing everything up and shipping things back to their headquarters when the temporary shop closes for the season.

 #79 – Football Games

It’s Football season and many stadiums (NFL and high school) need help during home games directing people to their seats, selling concessions to the fans, directing traffic/parking, pouring drinks at the Beer cart or stadium bar.  I know that the stadium here in Denver hires employees to do all of this for their “at home games”.  One friend of mine is a bartender at the local stadium bar during the home games and even though it’s a long day, she makes great money, so it’s well worth her day away from her family.  Check with your local stadium or high school to see who runs the concessions because that would be the company that you would need to apply with or reach out to when inquiring about any opportunities.  What a great way to keep up with your favorite hometown team while getting paid!
