Save it,if I got some extra cash I'd save it.
Get a mini cash isa or something,you can invest upto £3K by April 5th if you haven't already opened another or added to any old ones this tax yr.

Internet gambling and online p*rn subscriptions, or if thats a no i am willing to PM you my paypal address. Think about it.

Sex, drugs and a little rock 'n' roll.

Failing that, stick it in an ISA.

Whichever floats your boat really.

:giggle: Sorry if I sound boring! Saying that though, we've got nice cars, stupidely big tellies, a PS3, a Wii, a tempur bed :oops: so, really, we're just as bad as everyone else at wasting money :roll: :giggle:

I'd honestly invest it or put it in a high interest account... don't waste it on stuff you don't need... you might need it for something important one day!!!

:lol: You should do this for a living!

I got the first part of my bonus this month - £2k away for a replacement car next year, £500 towards the wedding, and £400 to treat us! I am expecting another few thousand in January and that will probably be spent the same.

However - and even though it might sound sad, I agree on paying some of your mortgage off!

PS - can't believe how much the Tax Man takes off me!!!!!!!

I worked like a dog throughout September and managed to earn a £780 bonus for the month. We finally got our Oct payslips today and I've been taxed over £300 of it I really hoped my bonus was going to get me out of hot water but instead i'm going to be broke again for November *sigh*

Thank you!!!!!
Shame he ain't burdened with a mortgage yet :roll:
Makes a big difference to your debt just paying chunks off here and there :thumbsup:

Doh!!!

JB - we are in a similar position with nice car / TV / PS3 / Wii etc. and TBH don't want for a lot really. People forget that it's not just the payment that you save on by knocking the mortgage down, but also you save big time on the interest payments as well!!!

Precisely- isn't it something like for every £1 you borrow, you end up paying £2.20 back (or thereabouts) so you can be cutting thousands off your interest
You and me Nat, boring but sensible :lol:

Ach my old employer was an ass about bonuses, it was in a call centre and I was in top 3 (or 5 I cant remember) out of about 300 staff 3 months in a row, In those 3 months my bonus was about £1.18 yep thats one pound 18p

They worked it stupid there your supervisor got the bonus i.e he got about £350 a month from my work. No wonder he tried to make me finish my breaks 5 minutes early and work 15 minutes after my shift had ended.

asses the lot of them

Though he did once buy me a pint at the pub lol sure that makes up for it.

If I had a few grand spare......




1. £1000 on women
2. £1000 on beer
3. £800 on dining out & having a good time
















Probably just waste the rest!!:w00t: :w00t:

Ain't no such thing as posh totty in Amsterdam sweetpea :lol: You ever been?

I too would pay off some of my mortgage but as the OP doesn't have one my next step would be an ISA, although I would treat myself to something first, maybe a weekend break or a day out buying clothes?

Trip to the US to take advantage of the £/$ exchange rate. Treat yourself whilst you're over there to a nice Omega watch

If you have any left over you could get yourself down to Tesco and stock up on Heinz soup !!!! :w00t:

I would put some in an ISA and enjoy the rest, therefore you have something for now and somethingfor later :thumbsup:
