    Maybe babysitting or washing people's cars otherwise you might struggle as legally you re not allowed to work many hours at all at your age.

    paper round is the main job for someone your age, unless you're looking at something that's more like odd jobs (like doing someone's car etc)

    When I was 14 I used to work at an elderly care home where I would help with sandwiches and tea, also assist in feeding residents if staff were too busy. I got paid about £2.50 an hour for 2 hours in the weekends. I can't really imagine where else they could hire someone as young as 13.

    I did a bit of painting and decorating at roughly your age, though that was with my dad. I also occasionally packaged cards for retailers, but that isn't necessarily available to you.

    I made most of my money by buying and selling trading cards though. Bought my own phone, my own TV, my own clothes and a PS2 etc. :moon:

    Dog walking, baby sitting, care homes and stuff like that, odd jobs, some cafes will let you get a job in the back washing dishes and making coffee. oh, pet sitting could work too, for cheap rates.

    Babysitting at 13? Thats a position of high responsibility and as such, very unsuitable for a 13 year old.

    Agree about other stuff such as car cleaning and helping people with minor odd jobs.
