    I need some tips on how to earn money. I figured since this is a forum, i could get advice from real people. And i've already tried mowing yards but that didn't work to well. And i live in a real small town, so small we don't even have a conveince store. And i can't babysit so any help?

    If it's that small a town, could you maybe get a job putting up hay for a local farmer/rancher? How old are you?

    I agree with that, If anyone in town has a farm or ranch I bet they'd love the help, but those old farmers work from sun up to sun down so you better be ready for that. I have found that there isn't much else that makes you feel as good as a full day of honest work. :) good luck

    Try selling AVON. There is also Silpada Designs, they sell silver jewelry. You could be a sales rep for them.

    Start a business picking up people's yards picking up after their dogs.

    Sell things on the Web... Find things that you can either acquire locally or resell at a profit, then put up ads and sell them. Start with small items of good quality. Low enough that people can buy on a whim. Make a profit but not so much that if they're disappointed they'd ask for a refund. Maybe there's a local craftsman that has a lot of art or other items that have so far had a limited audience. By putting online you can maybe get a cut of the commission. Find old items that are rusting in a shed or barn, put them up for sale as a piece of historical value.

    I had an idea once... I was gonna walk the railroad tracks and pick up old railroad spikes and sell 'em for scrap. Then I found out it was illegal, and the metal yards wouldn't take them anyway.

    ...but scrapping is a good easy way to make money.

    Have you tried going to businesses and farms and asking them if there's anything you can do to help out?
