Whether your son or daughter looking for a way to earn extra pocket money, or you want to earn some extra income alongside your studies but aren’t old enough for bar work, finding ways to supplement your income can be a frustrating experience.

Luckily Rainy Day have put together a guide to earning a little extra allowance, and it doesn’t always involve a paper round! Read on to get some ideas on how to earn money if you’re under 18…

Rent out your stuff

Got an old trampoline or bicycle rusting in your garden? Have a selection of party dresses or games consoles you barely touch? Renting out your stuff can be a great way to earn some extra cash. Sign up with a website such as RentNotBuy and you can see who is looking for what items in your area and the general cost you can earn – plus like Amazon or eBay, you can see detailed renters ratings, so you can be sure your stuff will be cared for.

Online Surveys

They may seem dull, but online surveys are a great way of topping up your allowance, simply by filling out a form! While you won’t get big money from these, with some dedication you can earn up to £40 a month – remember the longer the survey the higher the pay-out is likely to be.  Want to get started? We recommend My Survey and Paid Surveys UK.

Busking

You’ll need some courage and a bit of musical talent to excel at this one, but if you have enough of both you can make some good money. Make sure you find a registered buskers spot however as busking in the wrong place can earn you a fine, be sure to check if you’ll need a permit too.

Part Time Job

It may seem obvious, but the easiest way to get a sure fire extra income is to bag a part time job.  There’s plenty of ways to earn money if you’re under 18 but a job will ensure guaranteed cash flow. As well as the obvious paper round if you want to earn money, if you’re under 18 why not try working as a dog walker, baby sitter or a fruit picker. All of these jobs tend to hire based on recommendations, so you won’t need a CV. If you’re interested in evening or shift work to fit around college, why not try supermarket, waitressing or chambermaid work? It’s worth calling around to see what’s available.

There’s plenty of ways to earn money if you’re under 18, so with a little bit of luck and savvy searching, you’ll be able to supplement your income in not time!
