Here’s a list I’ve put together of ways you can earn some cash as a teenager. These don’t require you getting an actual job as normally you have to be at least 16 years of age to acquire one.
Here we go!
1. Sell Old Items
As you’ve grown older, I’m sure there’s plenty of items such as electronics or toys that you don’t use anymore lying around your house. It would be a great idea to sell them online, on websites like Ebay, or perhaps there’s going to be a car-boot-sale near you soon to sell them at.
Extremely self-explanatory here. 🙂
3. Pet Sitting
If a neighbour is going away for a while, offer to look after their pet while they’re gone.
4. Dog Walking
If you have some experience with handling dogs, you could always offer to walk other people’s, for example in the summer when you aren’t in school and owners are at work.
5. Doing Online Surveys
I wouldn’t completely rely on this one as you have to put in a lot of time and effort just to earn a decent amount of money, but if you find yourself bored often, perhaps give it a go. One I recommend would be ‘Swagbucks’ (as I know it’s legit).
6. Car Washing
Like many others on the list, it’s something you can easily offer to do for your neighbours.
7. Mowing the Lawn
Same as above!
8. Pocket Money Chores
You could always ask your parents for pocket money, where you’d do tasks to help around the house. These would include cleaning, dish washing etc.
9. Buying & Re-selling
If you’re a bit more serious about making money, then this would be something to try out. Car-boot-sales would be a good place to start, or even just online on websites like Ebay. Depending on what you find, you may be able to sell for a lot more than you bought.
10. Tutor Other Kids
If you have a knack for a particular subject and know someone who could use a bit of help then maybe you could give it a go. Of course, you wouldn’t be able to charge too much but it would earn you something at least and may become a regular earner. Neighbours who have younger children may appreciate you helping their child with homework etc. also.
Most of these are easy enough to do, you just have to be willing to put in the work! I really hope this was somewhat helpful and wish you the best of luck. XD
Thanks for reading!
