You're complaining about your parents not buying it for you when you yourself can't even afford it? I have not once asked my parents to buy me cubes because I know they don't like it. I don't have a paying job so it's hard to come by money but I still manage to have a lot of cubes. This includes paying for taxes and shipping. The only time my family ever spent money on my hobby was when my sister got me a gearball. Before I got into cubing. If you don't have any money I'm sure you have something valuable you can sell. I'm currently short on money (Only $20, I blew $50 on 3 cubes from this expensive toy store, bad decision.) So what I'm doing is going thru my old Pokémon collection and finding prices for them so far, based on my current research (which isn't very much) I have $1300 in cards. My estimate is that I have a total of $5000 dollars worth of cards (one of them is worth $700 dollars alone).

And I'm not going to spend it all on cubes (kind of obvious you'd have to be pretty stupid to do that) because I don't want to get to the point where I have to ask my parents to buy me stuff, stuff they don't even like. That's their money and you specifically said saving which is even more absurd to ask for a portion of it to buy a toy. "Savings" money is not spent on toys, it is spent on big purchases, which is the whole reason you need to have savings. Your parents aren't being "mean" or "restrictive" they aren't trying to take away your fun, their just being smart with their money.

OP isn’t exactly complaining, or saying their parents are being ‘mean’ or ‘restrictive’, and not everyone has valuable stuff they can sell. It really depends on OP’s life though.

It probably does sound a bit harsh. But I don't like the idea of expecting your parents to buy stuff for you and if they say no then you start complaining or thinking "It's not even that much" etc.

ah, i may have phrased things a bit weirdly, i never expect my parents to buy stuff for me, as since i was at 3rd grade i just got scared to even talk to them about buying stuff, even food, even clothes, even nowadays im still scared to ask my parents to buy me stuff, if i wanted something i usually hold it to myself and not talk about it, my father had changed jobs 4 times since i was 1st grade up until now so im scared to ask him to buy me something i like, my mom doesnt like me playing, and prefers me studying all day instead, so i dont ask her about something to buy that i like, the only times they would 100% say yes to me wanting to buy stuff, is if its linked to me studying, or something sports (a bike and a few balls)

and ive never go complaining if they dont want me to have something, i just keep it to myself

im just a 13 yr old brat, i dont have anything to sell, hell my parents wouldnt like me selling stuff, and i know their not being mean, i know they arent trying to take away my fun even though they sometimes feel like it, just a tiny bit annoying to know that i dont have anything to get what i would like, basically im just waiting until i graduate and can get a job so i can buy the things ive been keeping to myself since 3rd grade
