What did you spend your first wages on? Im unsure what i could spend mine on, i've narrowed it to giving it to charity, treating my family out to a meal, saving for something i might need in the future. But i need some ideas.

Saved 2/4 of it
Used 1/4 for driving lessons
Spent 1/4 on food/socialising etc

This was a few years back though.

Don't feel that you need to spend it, if you can't think what to spend it on then that is your answer. It is better to save than to invent things to spend it on. Once you spend it you don't get it back.

Don't be in a rush to spend them, why not save?

When you had your wages if there were small cheap things you wanted just for fun and not in desperate need of them would you buy them or is it better to save the money?

I didn't get a job until I was at uni but I didn't do anything special with my first wage. It just sat in my bank account until it got spent on food, travel and clothes.

Not yet, but when you have saved enough to buy a new car, phone, or laptop etc you want, you'll be glad you did.

I pretty much saved all my first wages but I needed it for university so... I guess the first thing I eventually spent it on was socialising.
