Why don't everyone give me a penny into my paypal? Hint hint...







Lol jk.

You can join cashback sites and whenever you or your parents need to buy anything see if you can go through that, it all adds up (especially if you do insurance for your parents, normally £30 - £70 depending on type and company).
Also, you can join some survey companies who pay you (normally in points which you can convert to vouchers for a retailer of your choice, like HMV or Amazon) for filling in surveys and answering emails with links in.
You could ask for money when it comes to your birthday.
Urmmm, set up an online savings account and stick some money in there whenever you can, out of sight out of mind, so you won't spend it by mistake.

Your parents more than likely take out house contents and buildings insurance. Say to them you would like to see if you can beat their current renewal quotation, go online and spend 15 minutes doing some comparisons and then 90% of the time the best quotation will be from a company who offer cashback. Do the contents and buildings separately and earn double the cashback (2 policies rather than one), normally the same price but with the added bonus of double the cashback. Could get you £80 for 15 - 25 minutes work, plus you will earn brownie points with your mum.

Place an advert on ebay offering 40 disposable cigarette lighters for say £3 delivered, wait until you have plenty of orders (a week should see a large number of buyers) and dispatch the orders,









a pack of safety matches in each envelope. 100% legit as you are supplying what they are buying.

You can't have everything in life.

When I was your age I had a bike

When I was at school I used to but the packs of Micro Machines and take them to school to sell indididually. Im not sure what the craze is these days but i would guess a small tuck shop would do very well. Multipacks of Mars and Cans of Coke would sell well. Or Crisps. Invest all the cash you have. Fill youre bag up before school and sell them at lunch or break time. You could even get orders for the next day. I used to sell home brew when I was at school for a pound a bottle but the school took a dim view on that.

I gave a fair bit off it away at xmas. When you get the xbox ill send you a couple off games when I finished with them. I got a stack off old games that I dont play on. They wont be worth much trade in. You can have them for the price of postage. They will be OLD games but it will be a good start for you. You remind me a bit of myself when I was younger. Some 20 years ago I used to enjoy saving up for stuff. I remember saving for a bike and an Atari STE.

They will be xbox 360. Off the top off my head there will be a couple off football and driving games. As soon as ive had a go on them ill let you know. Will be a few weeks till I get the chance to play on them though.

I would check out the paper as I bet theres a fair few people that have upgraded the xbox or changed to a ps3. You may get one for arround the £50 mark. Buying one on here would incur postage which may kill the deal.
