Before that monthly pay check started rolling in, you had to count on birthday money from Grandma and your weekly allowance to buy all the rad stuff your mom refused to purchase. It just wasn't fair that Mom didn't understand how life-or-death important it was to have front row seats at the *NSYNC Concert. But having your own cash meant you could spend it on whatever new fad or cool item you wanted. But buying boy band concert tickets was just one of the things every '90s kid bought with their allowance, because when you think back, there was tons of killer stuff worth spending your money on.
Every week you made sure to do your chores so you could get your hands on that cash. No matter what the amount, you knew how to stretch those dollars to get what you wanted. A night out with friends? An afternoon at the mall? All you needed was enough in your pocket to get you some Sour Straws and Crystal Pepsi, and the rest was a bonus. And what you spent that bonus on was totally up to you.
The 1990s gave you so many wonderful spending options. This list of 13 things every '90s kid spent their allowance on will take you back to a time when you used your money for fun, and not to keep you water running.
