What do you reckon the majority of your money has gone on? ;)

haha, well i can't say mine has mainly gone on my university course, i can just borrow books out of the library instead of buying them.

But i think i've spent too much on clothes, socialising and dvds. :(

Though i think i'm able to get bursaries now coz my parents have separated, i'll have to look into it. :)

I get quite a bit of loans and bursaries...although I'm still waiting for my bursaries to come through (will be mega rich when they do).

I mainly spend the money on my car. £70 insurance a month and about £50-£65 petrol a month.

I also spend way way too much on DVDs, Games, CDs and other stuff like that. Since Sep 2006 I've spent about £3000 and that sort of stuff (and that's just the things where I have kept the receipts)!!

My mobile bill is always too high as well, I need to stop spending so much on it.

I'm going to try and live a bit cheaper now anyway and try and make my loan last until september like it's supposed to.
