I really really hate spending the stuff. Ive decided to at minimum save 2/3rds of my cash before i go to uni.

Alas I cant decide whether to rebuild my ancient pc for 600 quid. Even though that would only be roughly 1/8th of my budget before I go to uni. Which would leave enough for a trip round Ireland.

arghhhhh *pulls hair out*

My advice would be: build a good PC while you have the money - it'll last you at least a couple of years and you won't regret it!

And Ireland! I don't know where you're from but if you're ever in Edinburgh and need to crash for a couple of nights then just PM me (i'm kinda old-fashioned like that)!

Basically - when you have money (if you're sensible) you're reluctant to spend it on the things you would when you don't have money. But believe me, when you don't have money you'll wish you'd spent that money on the things you were reluctant to spend money on when you had it! (if you know what i mean hehe)!

Good call Amail! There will eventually come a time when you'll have to spend money, no matter how much you hate it.

If inflation takes a turn for the worse, as many fear it will, you will regret hoarding paper cash. GOLD, thats what you want to be hoarding...GOLD.

If you take up Schwarz's offer of a trip to Edinburgh the people there will be able to teach you a thing or two about hoarding all manner of valuables. (Thats just a Wegae joke for the benefit of Schwarz, dont worry about it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif)
