    So, what can I buy with £220? I don't need anything, really, and I'm not into video games. But money is worthless if you don't spend it, so... ideas?

    Edit: I don't want to save it up, unless I see something nice that costs more. Also, I've had this cash for 1 month, so it's not like I'm trying to spend it immediately.

    You could stick it into a high interest savings account, or bonds if you really don't need the money. Wait a few years and a) you might need it and b) you'll have more to spend

    Or if you want to go shopping... go round the nearest mall and see if anything strikes your fancy.

    Well there's no need to spend it right now! Why don't you just hang on to it until something really catches your eye

    Why spend it immediately? Save up and go travelling? Use it for rent/food/living costs, or if you've not moved out yet, save it up so you have enough to live on when you do move?
    I really don't understand this "spend for the sake of spending" mentality. If you don't need it now, chances are you will in the future - hold on till then rather than squandering everything on things you don't want or need.

    This. Why do people insist on spending every dime they have. Next week you'll see something you like then complain you have no money.

    whats the point? "Wait for a rainy day"? I might get hit by a bus next week, I live for the moment.

    In 2010 there were 1850 road accidents. This (extrapolated) means that you are 0.003% likely to be killed on the road (taking 2010 population figures).

    Discounting for this risk means the £220 is actually worth £219.9868.

    If you think 0.0132p is 'living for the moment' then go ahead and buy whatever. Cocaine/prostitutes are both in that sort of price range.
