I didn't get pocket money on a regular basis either - my parents did give me money from time to time to do stuff but it was never a set ammount each week - it was more when i wanted it i got it - i don't ever particually remember not having enough money for stuff - but it wasnt' like I got a tenner a week and nothing else.

I'd be the same, never got a set amount. If I wanted a couple of quid to go to the shop or to a teen disco my mum would give me it but there was never a routine to it.

Out of interest did those of you who got pocket money have to pay for things like a bus pass and your school lunch out of it - just becuase a fiver a week seems really low if you have to include that as well!

I was the same. Didn't suffer from it. Quite the opposite, for me it worked out best that way.

I got pocket money when I was little and that was for spending on stuff for me, not like bus fares and school lunches (did anyone else used to take theirs in a camera film tube?). Then when I got to about 14 I had an monthly allowance which was more but it covered EVERYTHING. My mum used to buy me the odd pair of jeans when we were shopping sometimes though
I remember when we went on holiday we'd get spending money at the start of the week too
