    I dunno I just thought birthdays were suppose to be nice likkle days ... The purpose of bithrdays seem to be going right out the window & kids just want more and more and more (not meaning you or your a kid Tiff) ...

    Why not donate some to children who are less fortunate on their birthdays & special occasions often no family at all. Just a thought :D Think I would.

    we've already discussed this but you know what I think............spend it on me PMSL. No But really you have to have to treat your self with some of it, pay of debts and keep some aside to have a pamering treatment and a nice meal with Russ. Oh and a big bunch of flowers to your family members to say thanks lol (ok maybe not the uncle) xxx

    Yikes! How much debt can you be in at 21?! :shock:

    I'd put it towards the deposit on the house... maybe that's what your Uncle was thinking of when he gave you such a generous present.

    Credit cards should be banned or have a mz limit of a grand - its too easy to say oh i'll whack it ont he card and pay it later.
    That what we did - and now have 5k on one card god knows how much on the others, i never eer wanted a credit card but hubby did so we got one and its the worst thing we ever did - as soon as we pay it off i am cutting it up and chucking it, then if we dont have the money we dont get it.

    I would put the money in to a high interest savings account or an isa - that way you have something behind you if you get in to more money troubles plus it will be growing through interest.

    Iv been good so far and steered clear of credit cards, had a small loan of 1K but I dont think I'll get another, that will be paid off next year. Tif I think your doing the right thing must feel great to be debt free xx
