You can earn money this November and December by starting a mini food business at home.

 

1 Make it homemade.

Homemade sweet treats can be super cost-effective. Think: chocolate bark, no-bake treats, brownies, or cookies. They will hold up well for days and are sturdy enough to stay whole and uncracked during delivery or drop-off. Plus, everyone appreciates a heart-warming effort to make something from scratch!

2 Shop for the right boxes, tins, and ribbons.

Pretty packaging can glam up simple gifts. Check baking supplies stores for cupcake, cake, cookie, and candy boxes and paper bags in all sizes. Decorate by placing colorful ribbons around each box or bag.
