I'm 21 and I have some plans to spend money (in 5000+ pounds range) and I was just wondering what you guys spend your money on to see if what I want to spend on makes sense, thanks

House deposit :laugh:
Oof I can imagine that cost quite a bit... that's a very reasonable thing to spend on in most cases

Buying a house; I've paid the mortgage off early and it's all mine!

Otherwise, it's my current car and a blow-out trip to the USA/Canada, both of which cost more than you are planning to spend, OP.

There's a theme here - house deposit when we last moved (a million years ago), followed by a car.

My house deposit was expensive though it was so long ago I cant remember.

Car years ago.

Australia - five weeks. Often back-packing. Thousands - but worth it.

Irrelevant to this but most expensive cost added up over the years in one way or another - being a parent.

You spent "a million" years ago, on your house deposit. That's quite impressive actually😁

In a single time then I guess it was my previous laptop for Uni which I think was about £2200 back in 2018, If I count a finance agreement then it'd be my car at £5700.
