If someone were to give you £1,000 right now, what would you do with it?

    £1000 is actually nothing

    like what can you do besides spend it on something you'd enjoy for a week max
    I think it was a good amount for the experiment as you're right, its not an awful lot. It could still buy you a ton of alcohol, but it also encouraged you to use this small amount to try and make more.

    I would put it in my credit union account. £250 would pay off the remainder of a loan. The other £750 would be put into savings which means I could use to take out a loan worth £3000 (allowed to take out 4x your savings up to a maximum of £3000 so it is pointless having any more than £750 in there).

    I do not really need to buy anything. The only thing I would be tempted to splurge the money on would be a holiday as I have not been on one for years.


    Go on holiday with my chick

    Pay off a fraction of my credit card debt? (the joys of having plastic!)
