    I'm currently trying to save up for a new laptop, but I don't have a job. (I do get an allowance.) Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to save the money I do get and on how I could earn any?
    I AM 16 and so I could get a job, but I don't want to work somewhere I wouldn't enjoy.

    The only thing I would say is find a job somewhere you would enjoy...? Like, that’s the only way.

    I'm not sure where I would enjoy though. Like I'd probably enjoy working with children, but I'm not sure where I could do that? (I'm in college, so it would have to just be a weekend job.) I did apply to buildabear, but I haven't heard back.

    You have a decent Maths GCSE grade don't you? How about a bit of tuition for younger kids - try starting off modestly with friends of the family and don't charge too much, then work up to other people if you can get a decent reputation

    I do actually tutor my nephew for an hour or two each week, but I'm never sure what to cover or how to structure it?
