A survey by Wall's, a company which makes ice cream, shows that the average teen receives about GBP 2.71 in pocket money per week. Between fourteen and sixteen years the average is GBP 2.76 a week. With gifts, the weekly amount is over GBP 6 a week.
How do teenagers earn their money? The most popular jobs are delivering newspapers, babysitting, washing cars and cutting hedges. Some teenagers also do Saturday jobs. They can help out in hairdresser's or they can work in a shop. Most young people save about a third of their money and spend the rest.
