I earn £800 a month.
I must save £300 a month for uni (Sept 2006, but must raise all for 1st year)
My rent is £100
My driving lessons are £200
My contact leses are £15
My phone bill is £30
My holiday is £300, still to pay (by May)
I need £500 spending money for the above (in July)

I have no money to socialise and spend on myself. I'm becoming bored and miserable. I need money, things to do and ideas from you --> :tsr:
Thanks.

When you spend all day getting arsed for cash it's hard to stop using the professional jargon. You understand, I'm sure.

£200 for driving lessons...this isnt per month surely?!

also im pretty sure you could cut the phone bill down a bit unless you've went on a 30 quid contract (which would be mad anyway)

Cancel contact lense contract and buy on the internet. Considerably cheaper.
Cancel phone contract or remove sim and place in a drawer.
See if you can pull out of holiday.
Get a part time job doing nights in a pub/restaurant.
Hold off driving lessons for a while.

just being realistic. You need someone who knows the business to send you in the right direction. So how much will your first fee be?

That's what they see at first but then you work yourself up. Maybe some topless table waiting will be a good start.

Ahh bless you, you sweet pea. I am gonna print this off tho! I need £6000 saved for uni and I have got about 20 months. I've applied for bar work at the local. Can't hold off driving lessons or would forget anything I'd ever learnt, thus, all previous money bit wasted! Holiday is holiday and I had the BEST two weeks last year and this year will be even better. My prob is I'm too stubborn!!! But thanks for help everyone!

Why not hold off lessons and get parents to let you drive for a while

when you go to uni you will be getting a loan won't you so what's the need in you saving SO much for uni. 300 pound a month till sep 2006 means 6000 pounds - yes, it would be nice to have so much but you don't need it when you are taking out a loan. Why don't you save like 100 pounds a month or something?? or get a night job at a bar. Then you can enjoy the music, drink and earn money at the same time lol...Just a thought...
