    £7000 in a pension
    £3000 in a S&S ISA

    All in a LifeStrategy 100% (or similar) fund, because I'm happy to have a nice long horizon.

    Yeah funnily enough I hear LEGO sets are hugely profitable! Buying big movie merchandise sets and selling them after their finish producing them can bring in tonnes of cash.

    it's true but the condition has to be literally not even a scratch on the polythene wrapper to command big bucks where as a car or jewellery piece can just be polished up

    Why are you excluding ISA? 3/4 of those you've posted can be invested in an ISA

    Do you actually know what an ISA is...

    He's probably just thinking of a cash ISA which by current rates are a poor option imo when not earning a huge amount. Get a S&S ISA or a high interest current account.

    I'd stick what i can in accounts with interest rates of 4% or higher. Afterward it would purchase stock.
