A bank savings account is a good idea. If you don't expect having enough income this summer to make that seem sensible, give what you are accumulating to one of your parents and keep a ledger of the amount and when it adds up to what you need for your purchase ask for it back from them. This way it won't be tempting for you to spend it too soon .
EACH TIME YOU HAVE A $1 BILL IN YOUR HANDS, KEEP IT... PUT IT ASIDE AND NEVER NEVER SPEND IT. PUT THEM ALL IN A BOX AND SECURE EVERY PACK OF 10 WITH A RUBBER BAND ... WITH PATIENCE YOU'LL GET YOUR $50 OR MORE!
Oh, I'm trying to save $12.99 to buy my kitten a little house but I spent it ALL. I had like, $3.00 yesterday and spent it on gum (which was 2 dollars because i didn't have $1.17) and then a crane game which i lost THREE times and spent a dollar on it and mom helped out with change, but finally got something thank god. Anyway, make a little money box and put on the front of it, "MONEY" then every time you get some good money, put it in there. When your mom or dad says, "Let's go shopping," DON'T GET A SINGLE DIME OUT OF THAT MONEY BOX!! Anyway, I don't have a box so i'll have to use my wallet, but i can't bring it to the store.i KNOW what i'll try and do. But first I have to earn all the money and so do you.So let's do some good chores for a looong time and see what we get. :D
If you work or get allowance, always pay yourself 10%(save), pay God(give back),and spend the rest on whatever and you will always be blessed. You will start the habit of budgeting for life. We don't always have to have everything immediately, it's sweeter if you have to wait.
What I do a lot of is window shopping, I see something I want and I start to think it over "will I use it much or just once" I am as honest and truthful with myself as I possibly can. Most of my friends see stuff they want and buy it straight away and there was a small period where I did the same but then I started to save money or actually spend less so I could save. You also need to realize that happiness comes from inside and not from owning things, well things can give you happiness but only for a short period of time. Oki so you are 13 years old, create a bank account that you can access when ever you want but still has some interest or you can create an account that you can only access for a certain time each month or every few months. Also it is a good idea not to buy stuff just to impress others and owning stuff just to own stuff is absurd. Hope this helped some what, KJS.

to earn more money is to save money, so, the quickest way is earning more money, you can help your friends or you family or others and then get the money from them, as we all know: no money no funny or no funny no money!
well you can save money by not taking it to the store so you won't be tempted and if you want to earn money baby-sit or find someone that you know that needs help cleaning they'll probably pay you. i'm trying to save up to $100 and right now i have $30
CORRECT keep oil hot.BUT the Best way is use Peanut Oil then deep fry 2 times, yes 2 times. The First time fry only to get the potatoe fry soggy, then deep fry again until golden crispy.Use Sea Salt when fry is still hot
i dont know if this answers your question but it is to be not tempted to spend your money so if you see something you want but you dont want to spend all of your money on it then just think of the pros and cons think more about the cons and that will help you not even think about spending your money
