    10k is slightly more than I make in 2 weeks so "I'm considerably richer than yow!"
    Wow, how much do you earn a year and what is job?

    The lack of Ronnie O'Sul banter in this thread is deeply worrying.

    £10,000 is a lot of money to some people, but to others it is merely the price of a meal at an expensive restaurant.

    How would £10,000 change your life?

    How rich do you need to be for £10,000 to be like pocket change?
    £10k is not life changing however it is significant enough that i would be in a position to invest the money.

    At £1.5m i would retire at 50 and maintain a very high standard of living until i die. At £2m i would quit working for anybody else and open my own firms tomorrow.

    It's all relative. Being a multi millionaire and having 10,000 would be a drop in the ocean. Being a student with £3 left after halls and catering have been paid for a semester would mean that £10,000 would be a nice safety net.

    £10,000 wouldn't change a life in the west but in an underdeveloped third world country it would mean the world.

    Okay, so first of all, I know that little sign in front of the 10 is another durative of money right? (Spelling errors I know) A lot of people are saying that it isn't a lot but I think it is. Only because it's in the thousands, and even though I don't come from a foreign country, i'm still saying that that is a lot of money

    £10k is a decent amount....I wouldn't use all of it though (put it in a bank and let the interest compound).

    It would be life changing for me, in that it would buy me five or six dental implants so I could actually chew food. It would take me years to save that.
