How do you acquire funds and do your parents still contribute to those funds? Where does your disposable income go?



I have a job. I don't ask my parents for money, nor do I receive any sort of "allowance". My mom is nice enough to pay my cellphone bill though


I have a job and can’t remember the last time I’ve asked for money from my parents. I had two jobs throughout the majority of college and had a job in high school as well. I think most young adults I know who are considered Generation Z would have a similar response.

I save a good portion of my money and use the rest to pay bills. My disposable income goes towards eating out and sporadic shopping.

As a college student, most of my disposable income comes from working and goes towards things like food (I don't pack a lunch as often as I should), or sometimes clothing or household items. Most recently, I bought a small desk from a furniture thrift store in Brooklyn.

Interning at D1A throughout almost half of my college career has been hugely supportive! It has allowed me to explore the world, with trips to Spain and Italy.


I am completely self-sufficient and I haven’t asked my parents for money in years. My disposable income mainly goes towards fashion because I blog and am building an online store on an app called Depop.  Other than that, my money goes towards eating out and a few staycations during the year.
