    Yeah, Laurie has the right idea. Smart thing to do. Even if you're only putting 50 quid away a month throughout your younger years, you will thank yourself later down the line rather than wasting it on crap. Open up a high interest savings account (is there such a thing at the moment? My I.S.A account has been sh1t interest for 2 or 3 years since the global economic crisis) and don't touch it.

    Live for the moment, you never know when your time is up.

    Having said that, if you got responsibilities then make sure that base is covered.

    Not an awful lot, im not very materialistic though so it doesnt bother me.

    I dont wear expensive cloths, not into cars, dont go out all to often.

    Think most my money goes on eating out, food and protein powder

    Living in Australia at the minute im earning a killing compared to what I would get in the UK.

    I have been saving but also investing in some expensive stuff I couldn't afford in the UK as easy.

    Back to saving for me now, want to buy a house when I get home so need a nice big deposit these days

    Practically nothing hence why I'm moving soon!

    Only working part time, not entitles to benefits and trying to keep my own place has proved impossible. Mate is letting me move in with her rent free for a while so thats £100 a week better off straight away.

    Really back into the bodybuilding now so will be great to be able to buy the food I want instead of whats cheap

    Same situation and attitude as Laurie G.

    To anyone wasting huge amounts of money on rent... for gods sake invest in bricks and mortar. There has always been a shortage of housing in this country and always will be, therefore property prices (and rent) are always going to rise long term.

    For the same reason its wise to invest that money in property because it will always give a good return long term. Rent = dead money.
