    Anyone else imagispent their student loans before even getting them...
    Or in my case even a offer for University...

    I got my interview date through, and in readyness I researched likely grants and loans I could recieve to help fund some of the bigger purchases.

    So far I have Imagibought [Imaginary buying - spot the pattern?]

    A Macbook Pro
    A Macbook pro bag that doesn't look like a laptop bag / doesn't scream PLEASE MUG ME
    iWorks
    the entire Adobe CS4 software package
    Some UGG boots.

    Admittedly I actually will need at least some of the above, the UGG boots are mainly me lamenting the destruction of my most recent pair of shoes by too much walking.

    So who else has imagispent™ their loans and grants, and what on?

    I think everyone does this. I'm in the final semester of my final year at university, and I STILL imagispend my grant and loan before I even have it! In the months since getting my current one I've already spent waaay more than my budget would ever have allowed, and I already have plans for my next one: iPod and trip to London, expect me!! :woo:

    Well, after careful consideration I have come up with spending my loan on:

    -A roof over my head
    -food

    :rolleyes:

    If I come into surprise money, it might be relegated into paying instead for some new clothes and a nice laptop bag.

    I will be £250 short on accomodation with my Maintenance loan yet have still 'imagibought' myself a Macbook Pro, put a preorder down on an iPad and a nice sum put away for car insurance.

    We can all dream!
