Consumers, with school being out now for the summer many young kids want to do things to make some money. If your child is interested in a lemonade stand here are some tips that will help to keep your cost down. Purchase your powdered drink mixes from The Dollar Tree, Dollar General and The Dollar Family Store. You will find inexpensive styrofoam cups there as well. Keep these mixes handy also for when the neighborhood kids descend upon you for a drink while playing outside. My son was famous for bringing the neighborhood kids in for a drink several times during the day while playing outside when he was five and six years old. I wised up quickly and kept the inexpensive drink mixes and snacks on hand to serve when this happened. For now happy shopping!
