visiting rec league HQ or scanning grocery store bulletin boards for deets—and
get in touch to see if they need any help.

everyone older than you needs a li’l help with technology from time to time. Start

Thanks for this. I started selling bracelets last year and they were a big hit! I am going to start selling coin purses, magnets, and headbands to see if people would be interested in those also. Thanks for the great ideas!
I have a question too. What is an Etsy account?

You know, if you have a GPA of 3.5 or above you could tutor some of your younger cousins or close friends. What's good about this is that you can set your own schedule and if you work more time than you usually do for a day voluntarily, or if your little tutoree gets their grade up, their parents will give you a tip.

I'm only 14 and I'd like to make ome money. I'm trying to save money for my bank account and a college fund, while also having spending money! I'm also wanting to save up for a really nice camera, but it's $1200 dollars. I work for my dad at his automotive shop once a week. I get about $50 because I get minimum wage. I had a yard sale last week but only made 8 dollars. I'm going to have another one soon though. What are more ways I can make money though? I live in a VERY rural area so I can't run errands for elderly neighbors, and petsitting and babysitting aren't good because nobody around here goes anywhere! I would just like to find ways to make more money that won't take up all my time everyday but that will still keep me busy. Any ideas? Thanks!
Have you tried setting up a summer job at a camp, pool stand, or snowball stand? Jordan S.
