I get £70 a month but I have to buy all my clothes unless they're for school and anything else I need comes out of that too. Though having said that, my parents pay for my horse as well which is really expensive, all I pay for is show entries.

Err no not really I do end up spending so much of it going out on the town and all that (as you do) so I'm quite broke at the end of a week!!!

I get £40 from my dad even though I'm working because otherwise I pointed out to him it makes me less keen to get a job if i was gonna loose that money(got one now though) but I have to pay phone bill too.

Not sure how you could be broke by the end of the week. Oh well.

I have never got pocket money regulary. My Grandad would buy my sweets as a kid, and then when I got to about 10 would give me a pound to buy my own.
My dad now occasionally gives me £10 if I mention I'm going shopping in a different city or he remembers it is someones birthday etc. I do help him out with work (most recently fitting a boiler) and get money for that...but thats like a job because I actually have to work for it.
My mum will pay for food in college one day a week, and sometimes gives me money back for my bus fare.

I've worked since I was 14 and paid for my own things as much as I could.
Getting pocket money while being able to have a job seems really strange to me.
