I have been trying to get a summer job (I'm 16) for awhile now, but no one is hiring and I go back to school in less than a month. I wanted to save up money to buy back to school clothes, makeup etc because I always do each year to boost my self esteem.
I only have 100$ and things aren't cheap especially when I'm trying to stretch my money as far as possible.
My mom always seems to subtly give me crap about clothes shopping, she thinks I have too much which I definitely do not (I Haven't gone shopping in forever) But looking good is important to me because when I look good or have new clothes I feel good about myself and feel like I can accomplish anything. Is that shallow or selfish to think?
I'm asking because I really don't know how to make money, I live in the middle of no where and its too late for a summer job, I hope my parents will help me out but idk. should I ask them if I can do odd jobs around the house? >:(

Shallow or not, I think the same way you do. Every shopping trip gives me a little thrill because the clothes I buy help me express my personality and are my first impression on the rest of the world. I think most girls feel good when they look good.
For $300 I was able to get four pairs of shoes, a skirt, a pair of shorts, five dresses, a scarf, a tank top, a blazer, a t-shirt, and two sweaters at Forever 21. If you take your $100 there I'm sure you'll be able to get some pretty good and cute stuff.0
