I'm 15 and I need to make some money, other than the obvious ways like car wash babysitter etc.
Thanks

paper round?
Offer all your neighbours the option to have their bins taken out and put back on the appropriate days, charge say 50p per bin?

I tried to get my daughter to do that but she is lazy and didn't want to. If you make millions from this idea I want 10%

Thinking about doing that over the summer, work isn't really an option at the minute with school

About the bins, if you can get your hands on a pressure washer, ask people if they want them cleaned out for £ .

I would pay for my garden to be done too
Realistically there are only two ways I can think of (went through this myself).

Option 1: Find someone who is willing to give you an under 16's part time job (usually through a friend of your dad/mum) or a paper-round.

Option 2: Wait until you are 16 and then get a job, Wetherspoons floor associate or BHS part time worker is the sort of thing you'd be looking at.

Part of the money would actually be going towards this as it is more expensive than you think!
I used to sell cans or bottles of drinks (nothing alcoholic before anyone says) when I was around that age at school.
Buying mulitpacks and splitting them up into singles. Not hard to find cans for 25p each (£2/6pack) and easy to flip for 50p each.
Added this to selling sweets or crisps (same principle mutlipacks/buys and split) and I was raking in a fair bit before the first lessons ever started.
Get a day there was a PE class and you could flip a (or 3) crate of 24 no trouble.

Probably cracked down on it a lot now what with the healthy eating stuff, but gave me a steady small income for little effort plus all done in school time.
Ask family friends and stuff for helping out any businesses, paper round, baby sitting?, wait till your 16 and do pizza delivery (many places supply the bike and all costs), playground shop idea is decent. Some guy use to sell lucozade and make like £10-15 a day buying multipacks from Iceland on the way to school and flipping it etc
Place a big giant sofa in the middle of your local park, then at the end of the day, keep checking down the back of it for fallen loose change
dog walking after school - charge per hour, ask local kennels if they have any weekend jobs.
dog walking,ask business if they want a leaflet drop,baby sitting,sell old phones,cds,dvd ect,sell old books
