Lightbulb New Guy! I Need Help!

Hi! I decided that I am going to get another betta since I have a betta bowl. It is bigger than Mr Jingles' betta kit, though. I have a picture of Mr Jingles' betta kit in my album BTW. I decided I want a brightly coloured betta so it would be easier to take pictures of him! I want to name him Seth or something like that, but there's one problem.... I would need to buy him ($5.00) and gravel ($12.00) and a plant ($3.00) and a little shelter ($5.00) So the issue is.... I ONLY HAVE $3.00 HANDY! Which means I have to start saving my money to buy all of this stuff because it's a total of $25.00! So, what is a good way to get money? I'll have no problem with the saving part because I don't buy much, but how can a teenager get money? PLEASE HELP I REALLY WANT A BETTA! :)

Do what I'm doing. Every single quarter, penny, nickel, dime, collect it in a piggy back. It all adds up since its money! As of this moment, I have a piggy bank and a sack of change that will probably add up to 25-35 dollars. Plus, I have 28 dollars from my birthday! I find that putting your dollar bills in the piggy bank saves you from impulse buying.

However, you can only do this if you have a Coin Star somewhere in a grocery store like Publix. They are basically big machines that you dump your change into and it counts it, giving you a receipt. You take that to a cashier and they give you the money(:

Ask your parents if they'll pay you for doing chores around the house, my parents used to be willing to give me some money for vacuuming or doing the dishes, and stuff like that

Remember that you need to buy a heater too, which may not fit well in a bowl... A bowl isnt the best tank for a betta because it is hard to heat.

Do I really HAVE to buy a heater? I'm not saying I don't want to, it's the fact that I am having a hard time earning money...
