  I earn extra money from a paper round
Updated 27 August 2003, 08.14

Rhiannon's making some extra money by doing a paper round in her local area.

In her report she tells us why she thinks her part-time job is so great.

"I was always terrible at spending money and used to spend it on junk.

But recently I've just started a paper round near my house in Essex and it's great!

Early start

I get 10.50 per week and it's only delivering about 25-30 papers a day.

It's ideal for me and I don't mind getting up early either.

Saving money

All in all I worked out that if I saved my paper round money for a whole year I'd be 504 better off!

Also if you get pocket money too, then you could do what I do now - my Mum puts my pocket money straight into an account, then it's there if I need it.

While I can spend my paper round money whenever I want!

Keep fit

I love doing it and it keeps you fit as it's good exercise if you cycle (like me) or walking is also really good!

It's great but you should be 13 like I am when you start.

So if you're looking for cash then head to your local newsagent."

Rhiannon, 13, Benfleet, Essex
