My dad has a GF and she supports us.i want to ask her to take me shopping for spring and summer clothes.How do I ask her to take me shoping?

My dad doesn't have much money, I feel poor in comparison to my friends. I'm 13 and a girl. PLEASE HELP! I don't wanna sound rude.

She might actually really like it if you ask her, quite often we "step-parents"(girlfriends/boyfriends/wives/whatever..), don't want to be pushy or intrude, yet would like
to spend more time with the Kids of our significant others and get to know them better.:-)
Would just ask her nicely if she'd be willing to take you shopping for some clothes you
need and then let her help decide where to go. If you do go; let her help in choosing but
also make sure you pick clothes you'll actually wear, she'll really appreciate seeing you
In them!:-). Have fun and Good luck!:-)

How about asking her if you can do chores to earn money for shopping?

Ask your dad first, because he's your dad. He may tell you how to ask his GF politely. Don't ask to go to an expensive store. Go to TJ Maxx or Penney's and look through the clearance section (honestly, clearance is just clothes that they're trying to sell off to make room for the next shipment. It doesn't make them less fashionable or anything.)

Good advice Quester! And so True about "clearance", found some of my best deals and very nice ones in clearance!:-).

Absolutely! I see $50 pricetags on jeans and think "Psh, why would I spend that much?" Wait 3 weeks and they're $9.99 lol

Yep! I used to be in Retail Management and there were always some of the Newer styles included in Sales just as "attention grabbers", also great time place to find those more expensive Classic styles/Brands for waaay less!:-).

make it a girls day, to bond together and have fun. do tiny jobs or chores to bring as much of your own mony as you can, you dont want to make her buy everything and use her.
