i think the title is obvious, i need cash. i'm saving up for a new amp, and eventually i need a car, but i cant figure out the best way to get money.
ive had a few jobs, all pretty low paying and ridiculous hours. i cant get hired anywhere better.

a lot of kids my age would consider dealing drugs in this situation, but its already pretty established in my area, and it would be unlikely at this point that i could get in on that

does anyone have any tips on making some easy cash?

Keep all of the loose change you have and don't spend excessively.

christmas is right around the corner.

or get a job, and save at least 10 percent of each paycheck.
it adds up.

Try buying **** at the dollar store and reselling it for 2x the price. I've done it twice before with bottled water and made about 120 bucks each time. Granted you need some initial money to get it going.

be a ticket tout. i make about 50% on tickets i buy..you have to judge which ones are likely to sell out and be prepared to go incase you dont sell em..eg dont buy opera tickets. I made about $700 in 6 months doing it.

You guys are cute with your 4 digit monthly incomes.
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

Yeah, but I'm 16 and actually have a useful skill. I could teach music since I play 7 different instruments, but as my profile says, I couldn't make music a job.



thats a B/S attitude dude. i used to think like that when i was working for $7 per hour working in a hell hole like a slave in Mcdonalds. Now i charge $36 per hour to teach music in my house.

That's not a b/s attitude. I play music because I love it, and I'd be willing to teach it for free. YOU, on the other hand, have a bull**** attitude for saying my job sucks, you close minded idiot.


okay then buddy enjoy your relaxing 8 hour shift tomorrow down at the factory being the machinist. dont work too hard.

only 40 years to go

edit..youre only 16?. Why arent you in school?

If there was an easy way to make money we would all be rich. There is no magic way, especially if you don't have any money to start with.

Though I wonder how much cash I could make buying stuff from pawn shops then reselling them on Ebay/Craigslist...

Is there ANYWHERE where you need a license to gig? That seems somewhat totalitarian to me...
