I need money

OK... so I am a teenager who does not have time for a job... so I need other ways of making money. I need money for spirit wear for my school, clothes, makeup. My parents say that because I am older now that I need to buy my own clothes. Luckily, they still pay for my food. I love food. Any suggestions?

You're not going to make good money online, sorry. Are you sure you don't have a couple of hours a week to work part-time someplace? When I was a teen I worked at McD's and earned enough to keep me looking fine and put gas in my dad's car which I also used to go to and from work...with some stops at local hangouts along the way. My kids also worked part-time in fast food when they were in school. My youngest, who just graduated this past spring was making $7.00 an hour at Burger King. Just some realistic suggestions.

I would, but I am in sports, so I need alternatives.

You need money but do not have time for a job? A job really is the best way to earn money. You CAN earn online but you will be paid much higher rate for a job. Why not get a part-time job a couple days a week? You don't have to work 40 hours a week -- why not try a job for 10-16 hours per week? You can still have your weekends free and plenty of time for studies.

The thing is that I am in sports, so all the days of the week are taken up by practice. That is my dilemma.

Oh I see... Well there are some opportunities for real money online, but as far as how much you can make, I think that is up to you in terms of how much time you invest. MyLot is of course great but you probably won't make a great deal of money over the course of a month unless you are incredibly active with some active referrals. I would suggest trying to get a few referrals for MyLot to start. I am also involved in a few other opportunities. Please email me if you're interested. Best wishes.

Well heres a thought, Learn a new skill if you don't have it already. Make an initial investment and buy some (Good) clothing from a thrift store, they rarely cost more than a dollar, depending on which thrifstore you go to, But I could usually get a lot of my clothing for a quarter when I lived in Green bay, now they cost a buck each, but I got faux leather pants, and seemingly new (still need to be worn in) Levi's for a buck. If that wasn't enough You can adjust them to look cool and sell them, looks up certain clothing styles, or look in clothing magazines for Ideas, one thing I do for Ideas is I go to different doll makers on the web and choose outfits for the dolls I like. Also, Instructables.com has a lot of cool projects, and if you are a teenager you have access to a school, you should know by now thats a prime place to make money, simply pick an awesome project, and use it in a public place, I.E. School, and see what happens, If someone asks you where you got it, your answer is you made it, If they ask if you will make them one, Say that you charge X ammount of money, X bein a PREDETERMINED ammount based on how much is a fair price and profit. (It can be negotiable in some cases but be careful if you made it for 10 bucks for one person and 8 for another, soon everyone will expect to get it for 8) Instructables.com also has some awesome "How to make money" Instructables including ones designed for teens :P So check it out, and best of luck.

It's always a good idea to try earning online. I don't think anything pays too well, but it's a good start.
