A new survey says you spend most of your pocket money on shopping.
Girls like to spend lots of time in shops browsing around, but boys head for the shops only when there's something they want to buy.
And boys prefer to stick to designer labels, while girls buy lots of different cheaper things with their cash.
So is that how you spend your money, and your hours, shopping?
My mum buys me the clothes I need and like and gives me money to go out shopping etc- I also have an account I can get money out of. I don't go shopping that often but when I do I usually spend a lot. I spend money here and there on little things but my money seems to disappear quickly!

I go shopping in Plymouth every Saturday, I sometimes buy things but other times I will just browse. I'm not a shopaholic though and I know how to handle my money.
Natalie, 15, Plymouth
I absolutely LOVE going shopping but I only get £7 every 2 weeks. My best mates spend a lot of money when we go shopping together every Saturdays but I only spend my money on bangles. The most expensive item I ever bought with my pocket money is my Man United shirt which cost £50.

I absolutely love shopping, and whenever I go out I always buy clothes without a doubt, whenever I have any money I just spend it!!!!! And all my mates say I am a shopaholic and I think it's true!!!

Alice, 8, Gosport
I LOVE shopping but I don't really shop for clothes but I shop for t-shirts with pictures and beads/bangles! My dad has told me to stop buying bangles because I have them all up my arm! I also like anything with my birthstone on it like a teddy or ornaments. I like lots of stuff from gift shops like stuff with my name on. I spent about £60 on that type of stuff when I went to Wales!
