i receive about $500 a month but i can tell you it isn't a lot, since stuffs such as birthday presents, stationery, books are all included (btw, i live in a city so standard of living is high that's why i'm telling you guys, things are expensive here). and it doesn't help that i'm brand conscious for example if i'd rather buy a pair of sandals from birkenstock than a almost similar one from other unknown brand. i admit it's a bad habit but i do try and make it a point to at least have some savings ;] btw,i don't know how the hell some of you get by with no money, maybe i should shop when there's a sale? lol, kidding, thanks for the criticisms nonetheless, i've benefitted ;]

(for the record, i do have a job and it's commission-based so i do know earning moolah is tough.)

You're SEVENTEEN and you get allowance? in addition, 500 a month?
Haha, good for you. I stopped getting allowance when i was around 8. My parents forgot or I just didn't care. A dollar a week isn't worth asking for anyway.

I don't think i've ever saved anything, except the dust under my bed.

hey, i'm not that bad. my friend receives $800 a month and whenever he runs out of cash he'll just have to ask his dad for it. also, i'm expected to save since my parents won't be there to support me forever D: in anycase, i do have a vacation job so it's not too bad ;] i'm doing sales and commission-based jobs pays a lot. i started working when i was 13 and my basic pay plus commission totals to $1500+ a month. so, my parents have no cause of worry that i can't fend for myself in future. plus, i haven't been giving them problems in school and i've been a counsellor and chairperson throughout my secondary education.

i still say you got it easy. i get jack shit per month from my parents. i work for my money and i'm two years younger than you. vacation job won't last you through the whole year, especially with your picky "brand conscious" buying. be greatful for what you have. there are countries in the world where people work hard all day for roughly 40p if you convert it to english money.
actually, what i want to know is how your parents can afford to pay the bills and give you that much money! what the hell do they do for a living???
