One of the best things about your childhood was that a 9-to-5 job simply wasn’t a thing. If you wanted money for a new toy or a sweet treat at the candy store, you may have ventured into the lawn mowing or babysitting business for a few days. Luckily, there was an easier gig that could earn you some spare change when you were young, and that was setting up a lemonade stand.
Gulping down a glass of lemonade is always satisfying, no matter how old you are. If only your corner store charged what you used to at your lemonade stand — 25 cents a pop.

It’s a cheap option, but you’d miss out on all the creative variations on summer’s favorite beverage.
