    I worked part-time while I was in highschool and full-time during the summers. I currently don't work while I'm away at college but I still take lessons with the extra money I stored from summer/cleaning the houses.

I'm pretty happy about it!
    Wow!! Good deal

    I used to go to a barn that charged 30 the group lesson, and it went up to 35 the year I left. That barn was the perfect price because I was only 13-14 at the time and I could only manage to save 300-400 a year by babysitting and saving money from birthdays and xmas presents.
    At 15 I left and am now at my current barn (16), where the lessons are 50 for private and 45 for group (but the tenth lesson is free so 45$ and 40.50$).

    For the last two years I have been working at my town's children's library. I work 3 hours a week and get payed 10.50 an hour. I also do some filing, computer problem fixing, etc for my neighbor.
    Then I also get a bit of money from my grandmother for cleaning her apartment every week and for bringing her some food and other things almost everyday.

    I tried to get a summer job to make my life easier, but at 16 you can't get much. Ya I could work in a mall but I think I would die working full time all summer. Can't stand being cooped up inside on a beautiful day. And 35 min in a hot bus sucks. >:(
    I got a small job as a junior counselor for half the summer, and will have a few other small odd jobs, like babysitting, more filing for my neighbor and etc.

    Ya that's all of it. I wish my parents could pay for a bit, but anyhow. Don't mind paying and working for it all. Makes it mean so much more to me, but sometimes the budget is tight and money doesn't grow on trees. ><
    Sorry for the book lol. ;)

    I pet sit! I house sit for some neighbors with 10 horses and then they tell others about me so I have a LOT of income from that. It helps me buy tack too.
