I need help I would really like to go somewhere over my 5 day weekend break but the play and all costs are going to be about $350(parents may pay the other half). How could I go about making this much, in less then a month.

I'm not sure where you are located, but here in the southeast United States, it's warm out. You might do yard work. Or if you are in some more inclimate areas, shovel snow.

Recycling things, such as scrap metal (aluminum cans, copper wire, etc.) can bring in small amounts- old Christmas lights are a goldmine. But don't get carried away with this- if it not yours, DO NOT TAKE IT! Copper mining, or stealing copper to recycle it for money, is a fast, easy, and affordable way to wind up in jail.

I have personally found that the fastest way to make money is to cut back on spending. Junk foods, snacks, eating out, impulse buys, toys, etc. go away for a bit. Pack your lunch rather than buy it- a cheap PB&J with a rice cake vs. the Big Mac. Do you really need another *insert noun of choice here*. That sort of thing. Just ask yourself if you need it as you put it in the grocery cart, and if the answer turns out to be "no", take however much you were going to spend on it and put it in your fund.

A garage sale may be in order.

Let your friends know that your are in need of a few paying jobs- somebody's parents may need something done, and be willing to part with some cash in exchange for it.

Good luck.
