Just keep saving your money OP and you'll be rewarded in the end. Then when that happens you can have something to show to your parents whereas your brother won't.

I mean, it seems like OP's parents are never going to be pleased with their accomplishments and the sibling gets all the praise for doing nothing.

That really sucks OP. But in 10 years when you have your own house and your brother is still living at home, it'll be pretty clear who made the right financial choices.

I have to disagree on the right decision part. Some children are always the black sheep no matter how many good choices they make. It sounds like op's parents have blinders on that will never come off.

It was the brother's very first paycheck, I mean are we saying that if you splurge on your first paycheck that you end up never leaving home?

She never told us how she spent her money, however. She might have blown it all on cocaine and gawd-awful piercings.

Just see if they have the same opinion when your brother is covered in Taylor Gang tattoos and you have your own business.

Slow and steady wins the race. Let him do what he wants eventually you'll be the successful one, just keep your head straight and focus on yourself. Oh and remember you don't need your parents approval, yeah it'd be nice, but if you continue as you are you'll win at the game of life. Best of luck !

To be honest, this is not that unrealistic. Even making close to minimum and working part time, if OP lives at home currently and parents pay his bills, he should have no trouble saving $500-$1,000/mo. After 3 years that is more than enough for a down payment on a modest home.

I'm thinking they meant for a downpayment, not to pay for the entire house. 3 years seems adequate if you actually put your mind to saving up.

Op might have to pay some bills for a phone or a credit card. For me at minimum wage I'm paying almost $90 for my phone with 2gb of data (cheapest I could find with good service) and whatever I spent with my card. So I never see $500 a month.
