    Nothing. There's nothing I need. There's lots of stuff I want, but I don't need anything - and would rather not spend money on stuff I don't need despite wanting it.

    A mentality I've strived to attain for every working month of my life so far xD

    Currently saving, as the wife is on maternity and her pay is dropping to basic maternity pay next month so I need to cover the difference.

    Then once she is back at work, still saving as I want new windows and a drive. Both of which excite me, I'm sad and getting old too soon lol.

    To be fair, he never said he was the dad. In fact, he chose the words his wife had had twins. Maybe use your pay on a lawyer? ;) :p

    Nope, an eternity ring is a ring given from husband to wife for a significant occasion.

    Super bonus payday on Friday but it's all been allocated already.

    Firstly pay off credit card debts. Secondly top up wedding fund and savings accounts. Thirdly buy new king size bed frame and mattress. Fourthly see what's left to get some things around the flat done.

    Big payday at the end of this month due to working 2 on-call shifts last month and one was at double rate but it's all being saved towards a car.

    This payday £200 worth of Euros, Payday after £200 worth of euros, payday after that £200 worth of euros. Bit of a trend in the prices on or around my paydays, it seems I can get that little extra for my £. In the grand scheme of things I am not fussed about the rates as the difference between a good rate and a rubbish rate is about £30 on £600 so that equals about 2 drinks in Amnesia....:)

    Edit: my 3rd payday in that paragraph is my free month.. I get paid twice in June so my bills come out from the second payday in june which is on the 30th iirc. 13 paydays a year rock lol

    Best TV for the money atm is the Samsung KS7000 unless you can afford OLED.

    Sound bar it would have to be Yamaha and something from their YSP range. The YSP1600 minimum. They have an atmos soundbar at around £1500 which is meant to be the best sound bar you can buy. Yamaha are like the Rolls Royce of sound bars.

    If you cannot afford Yamaha then Samsung sound bars are meant to be quite good as well.
