My caretakers pay for just about everything (tuition, healthcare, etc), so I don't have to spend too much.
As for how much I have saved up, that's kind of my business and I don't want to share lol.

I tell myself to save, but I fail almost every time.

Save? I pronounce the word as "spend".

I just bought a very expensive alarm clock. Had to borrow 300$ from my mum xD

This will be the last I'm buying for this year tho...

It's probably better if I had a poll instead.

This is so me. It doesn't matter how much I save because I end up using my savings after I finish going through all of my money in my checking account. I always assumed the average house hold saving was 80k....boy was I wrong.

at least in the US nobody makes enough money to do much saving. In fact, most people's retirement plan that I know of, consists of winning the lottery [...] But yeah... Saving money in this economy is nearly impossible.
I heard the US was one of the worst countries when it comes to savings....I also think it has something to do with the capitalism's spending mentality. I guess for people to actually save something it's equivalent to hustling, big time.

Is it bad that I've been using the same alarm clock for the past 18 years?

Based on the diary blogs, there are people that stay in the military for twenty years to rip out the full benefits. However, if you just miss at least a day working, say goodbye to those benefits. Even if it's reasonable like death in the family.

I'm 14, so I don't have much, but I have about $300 saved up for uses other than shopping.

Not at all, If I didn't start using my work supplied smart phone, I would still be using an alarm clock I've had for 20+ years. I still have the alarm clock in case I need it. It's loud and annoying, just like I need my alarm to be.

Edit:
I didn't start saving until much too late. I was over 30 before I started saving anything in my 401k. Even then, it wasn't until a year or so ago, that I kicked it up to 10%. I have a chunk of money in a draft account, that isn't earning any dividends, but it is to put down on a house, if I can get myself to actually start looking for one.

I have a decent amount in my savings account, and I have a retirement fund set up, but at the moment, between grad school expenses and working part-time, I'm barely breaking even, so not much is going into either of those accounts right now.
