ah I was in that pickle for a while. I cant get a job right now either (I'm 16) because my parents said no due to bad grades (I have 4 As and 2 Bs?). I got out of it over the summer by going up to this town north of me for a few weeks during summer where my Aunt and Uncle own a coffee shop, and I made enough there for a DS w/ MPH and MKDS, plus enough for a Wii+TP. but for you? If you have ANY family members that own a business, try there. If any of your neighbors have dogs, try picking up the poop for them (I live in AZ where its 105 degrees at midnight during summer, so people were more than willing for me to pick it up for them). Try mowing the lawn also, I made a fortune when my neighbors moved away and couldnt sell their house and paid me to take care of it.
