Anna: If you're really serious about saving money, I suggest muting or even unfollowing all those clothing shops you follow on your social media platforms because it just makes the situation harder for you. Then, get creative. Give your wallet to your sibling or someone you trust and make sure they won't give it back unless you really need it. Keep it in a piggy bank, including the bills, so that you can only retrieve it by smashing the bank into thousands of little piggy pieces. Make a vice jar. Pick one of your bad habits and put a certain amount of money, it has to hurt, whenever you commit the act. It's a great way to save money and stop your vices.
Reign: You just got to control your impulse buying urges. You have to ask yourself, "Do I really need this in the long run?". What I do is whenever I get my allowance, I usually put 60% of it in my savings and the rest for everyday purchases. But if you really want to buy something a bit expensive, I think you should look for cheaper alternatives before you do. I think it's also good to have a long-term goal in terms of where your money will go in the future, like, are you saving for a trip somewhere or are you saving for college? Having motivation would usually make you spend less.
"How can I earn money this summer? I'm saving up for something big but since I won't be receiving any allowance for the next 2 months I figured I can just find another way to earn money. Do you guys have any suggestions?"
Anna: Sell your clothes online or go to your local thrift shop. Sell your stuff. But don't get carried away, alright? You can ask your parents for a job. Ask your grandparents. Usually it's just doing chores around the house and that ain't so bad. If you're artistic, you can do commissions online.
Reign: What Anna said, you can sell stuff online but the thing is there's no guarantee the things you'll sell will actually be bought. I suggest selling on OLX or Instagram because that's where most people look for things to buy. This is a long shot but it might work, you could come to an agreement with your parents that every single day they'll give you 20 pesos or 50 pesos just so you can have a little bit of allowance during the summer.
