    You make a bit of money with ISAs - really depends on what type. With nearly 9k in an 'safe' cofund investment ISA I have gained £400 roughly (goes up an down), which isn't much. But if I wanted to I could buy more 'risky' funds, meaning that I could make more profit, or if I'm unlucky, I could make a loss.

    I unexpectedly found myself with £10k after winning two scholarships from my uni.

    I've spent half, saved half. What I've bought with the spent half..
    - Took my boyfriend to NYC for his birthday.
    - GoPro and accessories.
    - Clothes. Though mainly from TK Maxx as I still cba to pay a lot of money for clothes..
    - PS4
    - Booked flights / car rental / hotel for the roadtrip me and my boyfriend are going on at the end of June. We'll be spending almost a month roadtripping round the Canadian Rockies, also dipping into the US to visit Yellowstone National Park.
    - Haven't bought it yet, but when I get back from Canada I'll be getting a new telly. I like the look of the curved Samsung SUHD ones. I'll be going halfsies on that with the boyfriend though.

    Makes me look kind of selfish compared to all the people here saying they'd donate some to charity / give to to family.. :lol:

    The £400 interest on 9k? 1.5 years.

    I would buy a caravan, a copper on the inside, a few AS and A-Level chemistry textbooks and the tools necessary to cook crystal meth.

    I have actually considered this amount specifically recently.

    £1000 would go into my main account for general spending and splashing out. Could be anything from random days out to books to games, etc.

    £1000-1500 would go into my smallest savings account. I use this to save fro things that are more expensive and I wouldn't normally be able to just go out and buy after a single payday. This would be for things like a new graphics card or phone.

    Whatever is left over (£7500-8000) would go into my ISA. That's purely a backup account where all my savings go. It's where I pull money from when I need something expensive, like buying my car, insurance and so on. With university coming up it would likely just be a backup fund. Once I left it would hopefully have grown a little and I'd be able to buy a new car or go on holiday to Japan (or both). I certainly wouldn't want to squander it though. It may even just sit there until I want a deposit for a house.

    oops I forgot to add the extra zero
    Wouldn't that drain all of your money though?

    To be honest, I'd probably spend like most of my £10k on some nice parts/periphals for a gaming PC then spend the rest on makeup and clothes

    I'd say take my mates on a bender in Vegas when the youngest turns 21, but in reality I'd probably just save it
