    Just a bit of fun, really. I wonder what everyone spends most of their spare cash on? For the purposes of this, I'd like you to ignore rent, council tax, utility bills, groceries and car insurance.

    Working on a monthly budget, most of my cash goes on petrol (I have a budget of £50 for it, and other cash given to me by friends). That's closely followed by savings for gifts.

    How about everyone else?

    I rarely buy anything else: I bought a cd last month, and a game this month, that's it.

    Food/drink/Meals - Probably spend the same on food as I do meals, a lot!
    More than 3 days without eating out is too long.... I'm such a good student.

    Going out or clothes. I'm not quite sure because I spend a lot on alcohol every week, whereas I can go weeks without buying clothes but then spend loads in one go.
