If you have any things you don't want anymore, I would take them to the pawn shop and use the money I make from selling for anime or manga.

For teenagers it's much harder to get money. If you're old enough that there are no laws preventing it where you live: find a job. If you're young enough that there are, ask family members or friends of the family if there are any small tasks you can do to earn some money.

If not... get a piggy bank?

Depending on where you live you could shovel snow. In the Spring/Summer you could also do yard work.

With the internet, I view something first, then decide if I'd like to purchase it.

Well each week I earn $40-60 from my weekend job (it's only 3 hours on a saturday, but it gets me out of the house..), and I get a $100 cut from my centrelink aid money, so I usually buy 1 anime collection per fortnight..
I know what you're thinking, because I'm on centrelink aid, I shouldn't be spending my cash on anime. Well my parents have a bit of money, so I'm able to pay my share of rent and still have enough left over for necessities and anime.

But in my head, budgeting first THEN whatever I have left over I'll put towards treating myself.

work, you can always find tasks and jobs to make money. i was mowing half my block on a weekly basis back in middle school and shoveling in summer i would pass out flyers and go to garage sales and resell stuff online at higher prices. I even bought a metal detector back in 9th grade and found quite a bit of money and valuables. just think outside the normal.

Pack your own lunches for school so you're not tempted to buy food from the cafeteria or local corner store during lunch, thats how I did it in grade school when I used to get allowance for bus fare and food.

And to make money, ask around if anyone needs things done (cleaning, moving stuff, etc.) and if you have any hobbies with particular skills (photography, music, tech) let them know! I actually got paid to be the photographer of a 13 year old's bday party when I was 15.

If too young for a job then I would have to agree with the above. Yard work or shoveling snow and similar work that people hate doing can help bring in money. If you have some sort of skills in specific areas though you could always try making money with that. When I was younger I was able to make money selling pirated software or fixing computers. Unfortunately getting pirated software is so much easier these days that option isn't really viable anymore but helping to fix computers still is. You get the idea though. Best bet is to go for convenience orientated things. People toss around small amounts of money without much thought if someone is doing something to make things more convenient for them.

When I was attending school it was always hard for me to save money. So every so often I would contact my aunt and ask her for work. She would find things she needed done around the house or errands she didn't have time for and paid me for my time. I'd use that money to buy anime.

Think of similar ideas. Anime is much cheaper now because of the internet than it was when I was in college. I would first get a subscription to Crunchyroll because it's inexpensive and go from there.

If you want specific series that are classic anime such as Escaflowne you're going to have to put money out for DVDs which are more expensive, and don't even try for a series which is out of print like Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura until you've got money to burn. They can go for hundreds of dollars for 1 season.

So start somewhere small and work your way up. That's my suggestion. If you have generous relatives you can ask for anime for Christmas and birthdays as well but it's hard to get what you want that way.

Good luck!

Derp, free Internets say I can view shows for free. I might buy a lot of good shows that I LIKED soon but no way will i jump before try. I do pay for hulu+,netflix, and cruchyroll so my sexy Droid razr maxx HD can work out its HUGE battery life to view anime but its not my only method to watch stuff.
