Ok, since we have all seen these threads on every forum in existence, I am going to make a thread, that will actually get you some money!

1. Try to save change
Not a very fast way, but when you really start saving, putting pocket change in a bucket or piggy bank, and start watching out for loose change around home, you will find tons. If you really search, you can probably find about 3 dollars worth.

2.Yard work
This is what most kids hear, "Mow some damn lawns!" which you should, but for some reason kids have an excuse, even though it is not true and want to take the easy way out. There are other alternatives, note the words yard work. Don't forget you can also rake lawns, water plants, and de-weed gardens!

3.Sell Sell Sell!
Chances are that since your young, you own a lot of unnecessary ****! Get rid of it, the major ones that have high chances of selling are video games. You may have to part with some of your favorites, but hey your desperate right? The best thing is to sell most of your games for like 10 bucks a game. Most places sell used games for about 15 bucks, you get the advantage seeing that you are going to your friends and have a lower price. Even sell an old console you might not want for maybe 50-60 bucks.

4.Exploit your talents
If you in heart are a good musician, then you could probably play for a friends birthday for like 15 bucks and piece of cake. Hey about 2 hours for 10 bucks, yeah not even minimum wage, but there's cake! I am sure there are other ways.

5.Chores you lazy bum!
There are many chores you can do at home, like walk the dog, rake the yard, take out the trash, do the dishes, wash the car. There are countless needs. Talk to your parents about setting up an allowance and chores system.

6.Talk to your parents!
This is the last thing most people think of, and when they do... they do it in a wrong way. The best way is to decide which parent is in the best mood, who is more lenient, and do they even share interest in what you are trying to purchase? This may be a big leap, and probably wont happen, so just ask for about 20-30 bucks. Yes it is little, but better then being denied completely.


I will update this thread every now and then with more ideas!

Sticky amirite?

I don't agree with getting payed for chores. Your parents work hard to provide you with food, shelter, love, all the necessities and more. The least you could do is mow the lawns every weekend or collect the trash around the house. That's something that should be without pay.

I clean my room when told, take out the trash, and grill on some nights. No allowance, I know I don't do enough to earn actual money.

Go to your neighbor and tell him you will mow his front and back lawn for 15 bucks, he will probably say sure.

Funcoot, I know what you're saying, but you have to understand that not only do illegals work for less money, but they're typically far more hardworking than any suburban white kid. And once you have regular lawn maintenance people who you've trained to cut your lawn just how you want it, you kind of have to stick with them.

I understand your argument, but I guess you'd have to live where illegal immigrants are more prevalent in order to fully grasp his problem.

Funcoot, they want their mom's to pay for that. You gave the advice, its up to them.

when i was 14 I signed to this RENT-A-KID program run by the city. They called you for anything. I worked saturdays at the local marina washing/painting/vacuuming boats and i made about $80 a day. Sometimes i washed firetrucks before big parades. Churches are always doing something so i helped them set up their little fairs/bingo nights. Helped neighbors move big furniture. Shoveled snow in the winter with 3 friends. Painted at my friend's cousin's girlfriend's neighbor's house. The list goes on.

When u get older u get more opportunities but less time (if u go to college). I have friends working at their gym/at their dorms/bookstore. I work 40 hours a week at a deli making breakfast and lunch and i signed up to take lifeguard training so i always have something to go to and make cheese.

It all depends how bad u want that money. Get a part time at mcdonalds/Burger King/bodega filling the sodas/Dunkin dounuts/Starbucks/Dentists office anwering the phone/ pizzeria

Dont blame it on the illegals. They probably have 3 jobs and some of them dont even speak english. You tell me u cant find ONE job?

Ill be back with more ideas.

That RENT-A-KID sounds great.

I'll be 16 in 8 months, and I'll be able to get a job then. It would ROCK if I could get one at my local music store. Then I could make money doing nothing but playing guitar.

Does anybody else work at a music store?

get a job at a fast food place. Im 15 in 2 months, and i work at McDonalds. It really isnt that hard to get a job. Be persistent, and eventually you'll find one.
