Hi there! I just made a power-point presentation to my allowance-givers, requesting that I get a raise from 5 dollars a week to an amazing 12 dollars a week! Pshh, you say. But they almost agreed! They’re still thinking about it though… It just required a little planning and a lot of know-how. Here are some extreme factors that you should use in your allowance pitch. Look around you at other kids allowances and see what chores they have to do to get it and what expenses they have to cover (buy there own presents and toys, or maybe their own clothes).
But remember, when talking about what other kids got, only use people who get a better deal than you! (VERY important) The new “hip” thing is to get an allowance that’s equal to your age. I can vouch for that that, along with my behind-the-scene buddy, Michael, and all his pals, except for the ones who get way more than that. And when asking for a raise, shoot higher than you want, and slowly work your way down. But it’s always nice if you get more than you want, too! Act professional, as in I did a power point presentation after doing a lot of research. Plan out what you’re going to do with your money. My friend said he’d bank 7 dollars a week and save 5 for expenditures. Also, it’s good to make a contract, so that way you’re parents can’t get out of it. But the MOST important thing to remember… DON’T SHOW THIS TO YOUR PARENTS!!!
