I've had an idea.

Im paying off boo. I am selling a few of my moderatly expensive things to get a little cash, to get the whole $500 he sold for. Not much I know. I want to do this so he will be truly MY horse and not my PARENTS. Any ideas on earning/raising/making money? Thanks in advance.

hmm could you get a job around like where you live or something or maybe have your parents pay you for chores? :)

Yeah all the jobs around here require you to be like 18 years old or something which really stinks, and jobs willing to take younger teens are volunteer. :roll: But that is a good idea about chores. My moms been making me clean up a storm around here so maybe i could make some cash, thanks!

I agree 100% with Ginger....do a yard sale or garage sale. Sell off random items. Even if you don't make much it will still help

I just had a garage sale last Saturday to raise money to buy us a saddle and we made $175. :) It was great. We also had a little info on what we were raising money for, a pic of me and Miss Take, and a donation piggy bank. It helped that people knew what the garage sale was for.

If you're looking for a job, libraries often have a student position. My sister is in highschool and works at the library. It pays pretty well, too. ;)

I don't know where you live...but around here aluminum cans are going for around $.90/lb Which doesn't sound like much but it adds up in a hurry. I took like 4 garbage bags of squished cans in...(we try to recycle plus my dad brings us his cans) and I made like $80 !!!! Each bag weighed about 20#. Slick and easy!

My son and I take the 4wheeler and go up and down our gravel road picking up tossed out cans about every other month...helps keep the road looking nice and I make extra pocket money!!! (helps kill a boring afternoon too!) I made a pokey stick...nails on stick so I could pick them up without getting off the 4 wheeler and then I do wear my kitchen rubber gloves when squishin' those...they are kinda dirty. But it's free money if you want to put a little sweat into it!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20
