    I have a couple of hundred at the age of 26! Cry! I'm just approaching the end of my degree, so will be working afterwards and beginning to save with my OH. He's just come to the end of a share save scheme at work, so that will pay for most of the wedding! together we will be saving for a house deposit as well

    Mkap has probably had a privileged upbringing in her ivory tower,you can't beat northerners for work ethic.KEEP THE FAITH LASS
    Southerners are poor as :dolphin::dolphin::dolphin::dolphin:. 40K is nothing in London. It's madness

    I've gone back up north for a reason

    12k is hardly an ivory tower upbringing..
    I agree with 'Reue'... anyhow what's wrong with coming from an 'Ivory tower' with wisdom and humility a person can achieve a lot. I'm 'working class' - whatever that means; I'd happily save up for my children and give them things I couldn't have. I would also raise them to respect the value of money and use it properly. There are many well spoken, wealthy, educated people who get called 'snobs' when in person they are actually nice and respectful people. It's those from a similar economic background as myself that feel entitled - they never could admit it - while openly denouncing people wealthier than them.

    Also there are plenty of people i know who not only dont have savings by inheritance, they chose not to work hard and save. They spend as if they have the money. I know A LOT of wealthy people who don't spend frivolously.

    Very astute of you. Doesn't mean someone had a particularly privileged upbringing though.
    Hear hear! also there's nothing wrong with 'privilege'... I know and have extended family who are privelged by birth but work damn hard for the money they earn and save (btw I'm not having a go at you - i agree with much of what you have written)

    Let's hear from mkap before we make any more assumptions

    I'm lucky that my parents have been wise and invested some of their savings and my inheritance. Sitting at around £60k but won't be able to access any of it until I'm 18 due to them being sealed in trust funds.

    That's really damn good! Tbh..legally I do have a house that was transferred in to my name, but that's more for tax reasons. Technically, I have around 90K + the savings in my bank, but that's a technicality.

    Technicalities hey . But to be honest in London, where I currently live, this is hardly going to get me anything so it;s going to be up to me to hopefully add to what I've got sooner rather than later

    I wonder how much I'll be earning when I start my motor vehicle apprenticeship next month? :moon:

    I currently have just slightly under £5000 in savings but hope to have it at £6000 or higher by the end of May.

    In January, it was only between £1400 and £1600 I had in savings.

    Hmm...... I think you're right. :yep:

    Wonder how much on average it'd be if it was a full job in veichle refinishing, not just an apprenticeship? :holmes:

    Edit: I just noticed we both share two things in common, both our usernames begin with 'The' and we are both 24 years old! :five:

    That seems to be around £560/month so far? I think tbh, you ought to get in with larger companies? I mean it does depend on where you are exactly. Up in my town, I think damn the price of fixing my car is so damn cheap. So yeah..avoid poor towns.

    And lol, I guess we do!!
