Pin Money

Pin money is an English term that refers, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, to a small or insignificant sum of money (‘spending money’), to be used for trivial purchases. It formerly referred to money a husband or guardian gave to a woman annually for her personal (dress) expenses (Shorter Oxford English Dictionary).
