How to Make Extra Dough

You know that amazing Rebecca Minkoff Cupid Satchel Bag ($495 at Shopbop) that you absolutely must own this season, but are just about eh, about $450 bucks short?  Clearly your boss isn’t going to front you the funds, so if you are looking for a fun, satisfying (and legal) way to pick up a few extra bones then we recommend...Babysitting!

Our friends at Lucky Lil’ Darlings are on the hunt to find experienced, dependable, college-educated (or currently in school) sitters to join their full service company.  It’s better than dealing with Craigslist because there are no scams and all the families are screened in advance (read: no creepiness).  

Beyond babysitting, they specialize in placements for:
  • Nannying     
  • Vacation/Weekend Help     
  • Event staffing
  • Pet-sitting  
  • Tutoring     
  • House-sitting     
  • Mentoring
At the end of each job you leave with cash in your pocket (and check out the rates, cha-ching!).  Come down to the sitter meet & greet with the company’s president, Lindsay Bell, to see if you fit the bill.
