    I got £20 of petrol from my parents and a couple of bits of jewellery from friends. My family are poor, so that was quite a lot. I ended up selling my car and using the £20 for a secondhand jacket for the winter and the car money for uni savings. The jacket is still going strong!

    You know you could have actually bought a brand new jacket for £20.

    And the odds of it offering the same utility/spend ratio would be slim to none.

    Back on topic, it's a long time ago so I can't really remember. Drivers licence paid for, and probably a few small bits and bobs.
