    Idk if my first salary I got while working technically probably illegally underage where we told any government people I was just "helping out" counts but if it does then my first salary got spent on steam.

    If not, my first salary... got spent on steam. ****.

    Save the money on a high-risk portfolio. I'm young so I can afford to take some risks and not be overly conservative.

    i spent it ALL

    literally for the first two years every penny i made i spent on everything and anything, even things that i didn't need. everyone was telling me that i was a spendthrift but i didn't care. its only when i lost my job and looked into my bank and saw that I had £0 in savings that it hit me how much I had wasted my money. Couldn't sell any of the stuff i bought because i didn't buy anything valuable. always try to spend a little and save a lot

    Bought a smartphone by myself.

    I was 16 when I got paid my first salary and it was ~£450 for the month on a 12 hour contract at a phone store. Used £350 to buy a phone outright aha

    Was OK, made ~£700-800 at the new phone company I switched to when I turned 17, and that was 16 hrs a week.

    Either way, if you can sell stuff, I would recommend it as a job.

    What did you do with your first salary?
    When I was working during my studies - on my first smartphone back in 2009.

    When I got my first full time job after university - My first mortgage payment.

    Being grown up isn't easy to say the least.
