I have no idea how old you are, but when I was 15 I got a job as a deli clerk at my local grocery store. They pay at least minimum wage. Deli clerk isnt a super hard job, you just have to be fast and really mature.

No, I meant teen. I am 13, but I am in andvanced math... But it isn't my strongest subject. I could do Spanish, LA, SS, or possibly Science though. Or easy math (As in 6 grade and below)

I rounded up all my Littlest Pet shop stuff, and it is worth at least 130$! Boy, what i could do with all that dough...

You could do a paper route, babysit, petsit, plantsit, mow lawns, do chores around your house for extra cash...

Why don't you ask your parents if they have some ideas for you?

Everyone suggested everything I would have. LPS sets without the toys probably will not yield 130$ sadly. People are not willing to pay more than half the item's value if it is used. My street is ful of lazy people who don't walk their dogs, maybe you could try that?

Most of those wouldn't work for me.

No, I checked the value of some of these brand new, and there is this ONE set that is 100$ and it only comes with 1 pet. I have all the accessories, these are BRAND new, never touched.

At that age you'll mostly end up having to do jobs for neighbors. It's going to be hard work mostly, like chores and stuff. But it'll get you money. My boyfriend's brother worked the whole summer mowing lawns and cleaning cars/painting and stuff and made enough money for a very expensive electic guitar(nearly 1000 dollars) but he worked every day for hours and saved every last penny from birthday and christmas cards!

Not many places can really hire a 13 year old. But individuals can pay you for things. One of my friends who is a ball python breeder pays the neighborhood kids to help clean out the enclosures every week. He pays the kids 50 cents per enclosure, and has about 1000 enclosures. I wish I lived by that guy, I would SO do that job! XD That's more money than my boyfriend makes a week at his REAL job!

Most of the money will be made with sweat and work and yucky things. Dog walking, cleaning, painting, washing, mowing, picking up trash, etc. All that fun stuff. People will pay you for it since they don't want to do it themselves, ha!

Ask your bank about a savings bond.
