I'm in my last year of secondary school & can drive in about 10 months so obviosly wouldnt mind a car. I could probably afford to get one & the insurance at the moment but I have fishing as a hobby & I tend to spend a bit on new gear.

So, I've been thinking of ways to earn extra money. I currently have a job washing up but it is only one day a week (more in holidays) so it doesnt pay loads. I cant do much more though as I need some time for fishing, my local football team & socialising. Got loads of coursework at the moment as well which doesnt really help.

Just wondering if you can do much from home. I have had a clear out & put some things up for sale but I have other things that I dont know the value of.

Things such as some roman coins/pottery & victorian coins. I know the one that is worth the most (only about £40) but dont know all the names of them so it would be hard to sell them online. Might be best to keep this sort of stuff until I could find a dealer or specialist, although I doubt I would get much overall as their quality isnt great.

Found about 15 wade whimseys as well but I wouldnt know where to start selling them or their values. Not worth much again though based on my mum etc.

Anyone know the sort of places where things like this may sell?

Also, can much money be made by taking advantage of offers on here & selling them or buying things from clearances & sticking them on ebay?

If so what sort of things should be looked for. I think someone in my school bought silk ties from next in the sale for a £1 & sold them on ebay as well as buying in bulk of ebay & reselling them seperately.

Any other ideas would also be welcome but bear in mind im 16 & dont have loads of free time.

cheers

If I was you - concentrate on getting those exams under your belt. A little Crimbo job would do you until there done - then you have all summer to work before you go off to college.

School IS the best years of your life :)

this is creepy. this is me like a year ago. no money **** poor wanting o afford a car by my 17th birthday and out fishin down the river with mates. its up to you matey but ill tell you how it panned for me.
didnt get any jobs. was lazy concentrated on exams got good exam results and went to a good sixth form. got to 17 didnt have moneyf or a car but no problem with the amazing cheapness of public transport and genrally everything for students. just got a xmas job and shud be able to afford a car by january. so i wud say forget about it. no point havin a car when u cant drive it and its gunna be loosing value anyway. so just as said earlier get your exams done and get an xmas job next year.
good luck matey :D

My son couldnt wait till he was 17 and could drive but 5 tests and a lot of money later he still hasnt passed!

Enjoy yourself whilst your still young as you will spend a lot of time in the "workplace" when you are older, not because you want to earn a few bob but because you have to:w00t:
My son got decent GCSE grades and now at the age of 18 he has a great job in IT sales and shares an apartment with friends.

there is always ebay:giggle: :giggle:

man i wish i was young enough to consider time for socialising most important :giggle:

make the most of it while you can you'll be in for a shock in a couple of years when you have rent and bills to worry about :whistling:

When I was at school it used to really get me down when people said that to me, thankfully they were all wrong :)
