Did you know that you can work in a company before you turn 18? The application must be accompanied by the written agreement of the legal representative (your father / mother). My article how to find a student job can be useful!
Ask Your Parents
One of the simplest tips is to ask for money from his parents, it’s stupid but maybe some people just do not dare to ask. For example, you can arrange to do some chores (the dishes, cleaning, take out the trash, mow the lawn …) from time to time in exchange for a little pocket money, in general, it works pretty well. Make your parents understand that you are not going to waste money stupidly but rather use it wisely to buy useful things.
Serving Loved Ones Or Neighbors
You can offer help to family members and if they are nice they will certainly give you a small reward. Give services to the elderly by going shopping for them, help your neighbors to go shopping, mow their lawns, go get them the newspaper, wash their cars, take out their dogs etc …
Babysitting Or Pet-Sitting
You can babysit (babysitting), it pays quite well (8 to 10 € per hour) and you can be requested 1 to 2 times a week. By keeping children twice a week for 2 hours or once a week for 4 hours you can make 30 to 50 €, nice no? Pet sitting is like Babysitting but instead of babysitting you keep animals. The pay is lower (10 to 15 € per day) but it is easier than to keep children because you do not have to be constantly with the animal, you can do something else at the same time (your homework, watching TV, play games etc …). You can also earn more by keeping multiple animals at the same time.
Sell Lily Of The Valley
Even if it’s only once a year (May 1st) it’s still a very good trick to make pocket money. I myself sold for several years with a friend, and we made a lot of money! Our record is 600 € to share in 2 is 300 € each, otherwise it was usually between 250 and 400 €. It still requires a lot of work and requires knowing the right places to pick up lily of the valley but also to sell it.
It takes 2 afternoons of pickup and 3 to 4 hours to make bouquets to 2 people, then sells them on May 1st. It is necessary to arrive early (~ 7 am in the morning) and to place oneself in a good place (towards a market, in front of a bakery, in center town etc …). Be careful you do not have to go to a florist otherwise you risk a fine, there is a minimum distance to respect, it varies depending on the city (40 to 150m).
