Kid Work

Don’t fear if you’re too young to get a job at a restaurant or store. There are plenty of ways to earn money to buy that hot new CD, videogame or pair of jeans. Try selling these products and services to your parents, friends or neighbors. Be sure to check with your parents before you start your business. Tip: If you put $5 a week into a bank account that pays interest, you’ll save about $266 a year.
