Question Jobs (Side jobs)

I'm looking in a way to earn money. I had a job for lawns but the people don't need it anymore.. I got 20 buck every week or so..
I work for my grandparents for like 25 bucks or less once a month.
And you know MONEY and the WORLD is crazy...
I'm in high school so... That lower is to some, I saw a gas store with a help WANTED sign but I don't think they will hire a high schooler, and the hours too.. I go to a private school so the days are different from normal schools.

I don't know where to look...
Advice? Thanks for your time

Are you over 16?
That is the age you have to be in most of the places I have worked at.
If you are over 16 most retail, fast food, and places like that will work around your schedule.

Otherwise you can look into dog walking, babysitting, mowing lawns, shoveling snow... things of that nature.

Sorry but the snow put made me laugh.. Not being rude but, it's like 65*F here.

I would baby sit my because but it's family so... (long story) I might get paid less they I asked for.

I would mow lawns but the people near me don't need anymore, I used to but they don't it..

I'd add cleaning for the elderly folks on the list.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Yep, cleaning could work. Or just advertising for odd jobs.

See if it would be okay with your parents and maybe hang up some flyers at the grocers, flea markets, etc.

Is there a training barn near you? You might be able to pick stalls on your days off or help feed or something like that. I have a high school girl who came to help me out when I injured my foot. I'm better but I like her so much I've just kept her on. She picks stalls, feeds, changes bedding, occassionally grooms for me, just general horsey stuff.
