Grocery stores typically hire people under 18 as baggers. That's how I got my first job! Mind you the job sucks. But it is a learning experience, gets you some extra cash, and teaches you not to be mean to people who work at grocery stores (because their jobs SUCCCKKKKK). :) Hope it helps!

Hey, my job at a grocery store is AWESOME, so =9
But yes, a lot of places with small jobs like that will hire you if you're under 18. Heck, some ever hire if you're under 16

Starting up your own business/doing commissions is another option, *but* its technically illegal. You can't be bound in a contract until you're 18, nor can you have a paypal, so making money online is iffy. Lots of people do it, yes, but there's still that small chance you'll get caught, so keep business offline if that's what you're worried about.

Actually, I think we had a thread like this about a year ago with some good responses, I'll see if I can dig it up.

You could always consider asking for some pocket money (allowance) from your parents. Your parents already provide many services for you, and you will depend upon such services for quite a while. So I don't think it is too much of a stretch to simply ask for money from them. Even if they aren't willing to just hand out money, you can still convince them to give you money in exchange for some special services. Why not offer to do some chores around the house? I'm sure they'll be more tempted to offer you money as soon as you earn it through some labour.

If your into sports and there are any local leagues in your area, reffing is always a nice job. I'm currently a soccer referee and I got certified when I was only 13, so you don't have to have many years on you for this profession. The pay is nice ( $20-$50 a game for new refs), and your work involves getting paid to watch a sport you love.  :lol-fox:

McDonald's hired at 14 and actually a few places hire at 16 most fast food , selling art or doing things like lawn mowing dog walking or shoveling snow is the way to go if you're under 18
