Making Your Own Money
With summer just around the corner it might be time for you to start thinking about getting a summer job to pay for all of those “extras” you want but can’t usually afford. Or to start a savings account to save for future things like a car or college.
According to the U.S. government you can’t have a full-time job until you’re 16, but at ages 14-15 you can work part-time during the school year and full-time over the summer.
But what if you’re younger? There are still plenty of money-raising opportunities out there for you:
- Pet sitting
- Mowing lawns
- Doing odd jobs
- Selling crafts you make
Whichever job you find, by the end of the summer you’ll not only have earned some money – you might even have some fun while doing it!
