Working During Spring Break
How much money can you save by working over spring break instead of going on a trip? The specific answer depends on several circumstances, but the average savings could be in the thousands of dollars. Here’s a breakdown.
Assume you make $9 an hour and work eight hours a day for six days of a nine-day break. Your earnings after taxes would be $375.
Add to that your savings for not traveling to a typical spring break destination, which could be over $1,000. See how you can apply these earnings to college expenses.
