We thought it might be interesting to raise the subject of spending (or pocket) money with our visitors.
Lucas writes ... Personally I don't get pocket money, I choose not to and prefer it. Instead of getting pocket money, every so often I get items of clothing or things that I have been wanting. I think that it works out better this way, as I get the things that I would have spent my pocket money on. For bigger of more expensive items I wait a little longer, as if I were saving up. I am allowed to choose to either have, smaller and less expensive things quite frequent or larger and expensive things less often.
Hanya tells us... I get £20 pocket money every month for doing certain jobs around the house . One of these jobs are cleaning the table whenever we all eat together .I usually bank this money so when I want to go shopping into town with my friends I don't need to ask my mum or dad for it . It makes me feel like I can go out and do the things I want to do without feeling like I owe anyone any money. Do you get pocket money , if so what do you do with it ?
