    Any bit of money i find, make or am given i throw it in a savings account so i can save towards Uni' without being tempted to go after it, even though that's a year away.

    I've attempted to save some money from my current job position but it's impossible! Luckily, my parents had saved some money when I was younger so I have a couple of thousand pounds which I intend on not spending. I'm going to hunt down a part-time job position somewhere when I reach uni.

    I really should be saving but theres so much fun stuff to do with my money right now.

    I've hardly saved anything and what I have saved will probably be spent before I get to uni.

    Kinda, jobs well paid so I can still afford to run my car, go out etc, will be well into 4 figures when I start...but admittedly I'm bored of it so might just blow it on going to America for a few weeks. Student Loans and overdrafts are there to be used haha
