I had a bunch of neighbors that saved me their old newspapers. I'd tie them up then take them down to a guy that bought them. Some times I'd get lucky and find some pipes that I could also turn in. I also went door to door to shovel snow when it snowed. I guess I was around 10 at the time.
First job with deductions was as a kitchen help at the boy scout camp when I was 15. Worked 6 1/2 days a week for 8 weeks. Got $100 total for my troubles plus room and board. I fished a lot between meals.
I think I was 10 when I sold peaches out of the back of station wagon in front of Ben Franklin's store in Leonardtown for the Fenwick family. Was paid cash daily depending on the number of pounds a sold.
My first job that I receive a formal paycheck was St Mary's Pharmacy in Leonardtown. Started out as a clerk worked up to a pharmacy tech before I quit a few years later.
Babysitting. Started about 12 years old getting paid to babysit, and then when I was in HS, it was a steady job. I was pretty much the only babysitter for 2 streets at the time. I also went to stay with my aunt in Ohio for the whole summer of my 16th birthday. I was like an Au pair for my cousin, who was 5.
Before I started babysitting, my mom used to pay me to iron. I probably started doing that when I was about 9 years old or so. I would get money for ironing handkerchiefs, certain tea towels, and pillow cases.
