    I get my final student finance payment of £3.6k in two weeks. What should i spend this on? I did buy some gold, but then cashed in 2/3s of that to pay off my credit cards. I will still have about £1k left over when i pay them all off now, so what should i spend this on??

    I see no reason for the rush to spend it. If you have to ask strangers what you should spend your money on, then maybe you shouldn't be spending it?

    It's not a problem so much as an excuse.

    I'm with Sophie on this. Can't see any reason to spend it just because it's there.

    We're going out soon. And with the prices of drinks these days, i think that will be some of it down the drain!

    lol, why would I dislike you?
    I don't dislike you, you just said something which in my opinion is ridiculous. I call everyone out on stuff like that, friend or foe. Don't take it personally.
