Bank it because it's bound to come in handy when the kids want to buy their own homes one day.

What's the point in squandering it on something stupid. Think about it, it's a lot of money to have as luxury. You can buy all the rounds down the pub, you can buy the most expensive thing on the menu etc etc (for like the next 10 years I mean)
Someone with no mortgage and who earns 45K in the cheapest part of the country can probably already do those things

Tbh you have kids, by the sound of things you dont really need to dip into this cash yourself. put it in a savings account for them.

my idea is that when i have kids as soon as they're old enough im gonna charge them rent and put it all into savings for them then hand it back when they need to buy a place, getting on the housing ladder is a stressful thing and hopefully it might make it easier on them when it happens

House redceration,
tv ect for the house.
If you have any kids a trust fund so they'll have a decent amount when there 21 to buy a house with.


If no ideas what so ever stick it in a managed/investment fund for some other day when you might need it.

Id dont agree, average people dont save 10k up all that quickly and if id spent some time saving that up id at least want whoever got it to not just squander it on a whim

put it away and forget you have it. You seem to be doing well for yourself, so why shoot yourself in the foot, by blowing it all on something you dont need?

My suggestion if i have to give one: The largest TV money can buy

Put it away for your kids or yourself.

Or buy a Folding@Home farm.

I 2nd learning to fly, getting a PPL is great fun plus you then get to take all your family and mates flying when you get your licence! Can easily do it for less then 10k.

Save up, save a bit more on the side and then...

By a holiday home for when you retire

But i dont mean some tacky house thing in Spain, i mean a pretty nice holiday home.

Go somewhere like Goa or Thailand and and have it maybe man built specifically, doubt it would cost that much for a place over there, although i may be wrong?

Just a thought, would mean you could relax in a real chilled out place

Well TBH, the rich people I know that would get that will invest it straight away
"poor" people will just go and put it into their post office savings account and let someone else make the money.

People who invest money wisely are the ones who become wealthy, yes. That could take the form of saving. People who 'spend', ie. consume, may end up with far less wealth than the 'poor' person who saved and lived more frugally. The tortoise and hare scenario.

DOES EVERYONE IGNORE MY POSTS OR SOMETHING

I already said that he should invest it and use the EXTRA income generated to spend on what ever he wants.

The reason the rich are rich is because they make their money work for them rather then working FOR money.
