How much allowance did you get when you were about 10 years old?What did you spend it on?

My dad gave me like $5 every two weeks on Wednesday..and I thought I was rich,LOL.
I usually went to the corner store with my friend and we bought YooHoos,Boston Baked Beans,Lemonheads,jars of marshomellow cream and penny candy.
No wonder I am now a sugar addict!!!

  • I got $1 per week but that went quite far considering it was 37 years ago.

  • I never got an allowance. Ever. If I wanted to go to the movies or the mall, my mom might have gave me 10 or 20 bucks but that was it, it wasn't a regular thing.

  • No allowance here. But when my parents bought a summer home in the country, they would go up 5 days a week in the summer. I was about 16 and they would leave me home with $20 just in case. I squirreled that money away & told them I spent it.
