Job suggestions for a 13 year old. Answered

I was wondering what other jobs a 13 year old could do besides newspaper delivery? Because right now I am only getting paid $100 a month. Are there any other suggestions for a job that pays me enough money so I can give to charity and keep some for myself also?

Only a hundred?

Ee, When I were a lad...

My first paper round netted me less than £15 a month, and it was the local free rag - a long round. My next job only earned me £32 a month, and I ran a car on that.

  • Try local shops, especially those that open early (grocers etc) and need help setting out merchandise before you go to school.
  • Mow lawns, weed, rake leaves.
  • Lift and carry - go shopping with or for elderly people who can't carry their own bags, or read the labels with failing eyes.
  • Babysit.
  • Advertise as a Home IT Consultant, and do basic fixes for the Luddite generation who only type letters or send emails.
  • Wash cars, windows, driveways.
  • Do small repairs - flat tyres and loose chains on bicycles, leaky taps, tighten loose hinges on cupboards etc
  • Do local courier jobs for small businesses, delivering parcels etc by bicycle.
  • Advertise as an odd-job man, or "boy with bike and rucksack"

Thank you for the suggestions Kiteman! I could probably get a job as a local courier, if I'm lucky enough to find a small business that needs delivering. Thank you for the suggestions.

Mow lawns. Also, why not donate your time to charities, then you can save money, and feel good about yourself.
