    I'd love to find a genuine homeless person and donate it to him also buy him/her a meal with my own money.

    You can either buy a few things with it or give it away, what would it be?

    I would pay someone off here to do all of my assignments since the majority of people on TSR are applying for Oxford :rolleyes:

    This happened to me once, kind of. A man in front of me in the queue dropped it, I thought it was rubbish (because I'm not used to seeing them) and then put it in my pocket to put in the bin. When I got outside to the bin and realised, the man who I thought had dropped it was rounding a corner and didn't stop when I shouted him.
    It was three days before student loans were due in at the start of my third year, I was knee deep in dissertation research and had caught fresher's flu. I spent it on a Chinese, a tube of Pringles, a bottle of wine, lots of paracetamol and put the rest in the bank to get my mum her (very overdue at this point) birthday present.

    :embarrassed:

    I got a £50 Amazon voucher in mid December. I couldn't think what to buy with it so last week I gave it to my wife who replaced her Filofax with it.

    I now have £50 cash 'credit' from Bank Of Missus and the only thing I can think of to spend it on is cheap lager to tide me over until my next batch of home-brew is ready.

    It would just end up on bills or food shopping or petrol, the same way all bloody money in this house seems to go.

    I wouldn't accept it in the first place, it would feel wrong as it's not mine to keep.

    If I had to accept it then I'd either donate it to a charity or burn it.

    Without it I would have survived and got on fine anyway. So it would kill me to use it. I'd have to give it away. ---and possibly create a chain of people giving away £50 xD.
    Other than that I would save it.

    Night

    -Case of beer - £10
    -Big, dirty take-away - £20 (so there's leftovers)

    Morning

    Water, energy drink, full english £8

    Night - (self-loathing, shame and the want to do better)

    -Eat my left overs and save the remaining £12 for my next treat day. Which will be whenever I'm not in work the next day.
