 RE: What kind of clarinet should I buy?

First, Iria, are you looking for a better job?

Second, if you haven't already, find out whether your parents are willing to pay for part of your instrument. You can mention how much you've saved for this purchase. If they're willing, your price range could go up substantially, especially if they're willing to contribute another $500-$1000.

Third, put your birthday money towards your instrument.

Fourth, consider financing your instrument. That is, make a down payment, and then pay off the balance at say, $100-150 per month until you have paid off the balance. (You may require your parents in this option)You already have a significant down payment.

Finally, ask the private clarinet teachers or even your music teacher if they know of students who are selling their instruments.(They might even be able to negotiate on price for you)
