When I think back to my childhood I can remember a few things we did to earn cash. My daddy would pay us 1 penny for each aluminum can we smashed by feet and bagged for him to recycle. We would dig worms after a good heavy rain and walk about 1/2 mile or more to the local WORM RANCH store (It was a store that sold fishing supplies and baits). The store would buy our buckets of worms but I cannot remember how much we were paid for them. In the winter months, we went door to door to shovel snow and that paid pretty well. What did you do to earn a buck or two?
