what do you do with your allowance?

hey guys, some time no see.

just wondering what you guys spend your allowance on from your parents?

do you find yourselves blowing it almost the moment you get it, or do you save it towards a new car or something?

lately, i've been putting it away almost weekly... it's taken a lot of mental effort to keep myself from buying a new rolex but i know each dollar i save will help me move into a (much ) bigger house.

by saving i mean, somewhat obviously, that i put the majority away. maybe something like 85 per cent or whatever, into savings. 15 per cent for "every day use" so to speak still goes a pretty long way if you cut some corners along the way.

so i guess you can all tell what ive done for lent this year! saving most of my money for the FUTURE.

but anyway, enough about me.

what do you guys and gals do with your allowance?

i guess my question is for all of you who find yourself in a similar situation as myself (the rest of you should have stopped reading this thread by now)... would you trade it all in for a little more?

i can easily spend upwards of 6-7000 dollars a weekend when i'm out and about with my friends, spending money on shit like clothes, speed boats, pretty much anything i want - i buy.

it sure feels good feeling good, guys. it sure feels good.

so how much is your allowance?

well, it's enough, i'll put it to you that way. i learned my lesson in the last thread that people don't want to hear about my finances , so i won't make the same mistake again lol!

to be honest though, me and my dad have been talking a bit lately and it sounds like i might be getting a modest increase sometime before summer.

and it's only fair that i ask for a raise when i've been getting the same amount since i was 21.

BANK? Those people are worse than gravy robbers. Seriously.

PLEASE tell me you don't have a savings account at a BANK. You need to take better care of your riches.

I wish that my allowance money train- which used to frequent the station of my back pocket- was still active. But, after our father left unceremoniously, my family (province) was left without the regular padding of our moral fiber (currency).

Goodbye, sugardaddy...

I always tell myself that I'm going to save my allowance, but I always end up wasting it on hookers and blow .
