Did you know that once you drive it off that lot it depreciates immediately. Trust me I know. I bought a new car when I turned 20. Guess what? It was cool until I realized I needed money for books for college classes, living out on my own and paying my own way. A car is a car. So many young people think that is what they need to gain some type of status etc. Enjoy being young and have fun. Because I promise its a different world once you get out on your own. And when you have that COOL car taking your girlfriend back to your parents because you can't afford to go to college or your own place....well, you will definitely think about what you could have done with $27,000. Thats almost 4 years of college. or a Huge downpayment on a house. Don't get caught up in material things especially at 13. Try selling stuff online for extra money. There are so many apps now you can take the pics and upload right from your Iphone. Good Luck! Enjoy being young and carefree! Man I miss those days!!! ;)

5 Grand a year at 13? Good luck kid. You better make a mean glass of lemonade or start mowing some lawns. You probably aren't old enough to get an actual "Job" yet. But when you're old enough you should start saving more. Talk to your parents and see if they will go like 1/2 & 1/2 in a bank account; match you savings in other words. Good luck man. Learn code if you really want to make money. You're 13. There is money in it but you have to get it down.

Sell some old Trading cards, I'd pay more than average for good ones.

If you're 13 like everyone says, legally, you can't get a job other than what you listed.

Paper route. Tutoring if you are smart at math.

See if you'd be allowed to go around the neighbourhood & wash peoples cars & houses. Washing the outside of their house & windows would earn you great money. Don't go inside though.

First, start a bank account. Store the money you make washing cars, babysitting, doing chores, allowance, etc. and make sure not to take any out. I'm not sure you'll be able to buy one at 18, but good luck!
