Well...?
(This does not include jobs :rolleyes: )

Some of my friends get...well, rather a lot...
I was wondering whether most people were given an allowance or not...

?Me? Nada.

£10 a week for food and then I get other money if I ask for it. But my parents encourage me to get a part time job and work for my own spending money instead ..which I really haven't been doing for the past 2 months

Parents have never given me any money, but they do buy stuff though.

I get £10 a week from my only living grandparents (be werid if my dead ones gave it...lol) but I don't get it because now I'm working. They keep it in a pot until they have a certain amount and give it to my mum, she puts it in my account which I can't touch until I'm 18 without my mum signing a form and she won't do that until I see a car I want.

My dad gives my £500 a month for uni but I have to pay my rent and bills with that. But the £500 helps me from having to go into my overdraft

I haven't had an allowance since I started working.

It used to be £60 though and then went down to £40 but I did get more things bought for me/paid for.
