Ok Some Advice

Recommended Posts

OK, so been lurking here for well over a year, and would like some advice as believe there are some intelligent people on here, as interested in some response.

So far all i have in life is a wonderfull wife, travelled the world, partied(sp?) really hard, and have got myself debt free.

Was offered a mortgage in 2005 but even at that time thought the prices was too high (bit of a socialist) so we decided to clear wifes student loan and my 8 years (our, mainly mine) of drug and alcohol induced adventues.

so i know there is a portion of (bat sh 1t crazy/tin foilt hat) brigade on here, but you lot have got me jittery (SP again?).

We have some savings, but would now like to get some money together for a decent deposit(already understand my socailist values disappear at this point), I have 750 a month, what would be the best way to get the most out of this?

Hello to the board, and this is a rant (you will get used to me), just some general advice welcome and please no (HUGS)

Personally if I had that much to save? I'd buy a safe then when I had enough I would buy the best trailer, in the best park, for cash and keep partying........and do'nt have kids, all they have to look forward to is debt and taxes....lots of it.

Tbh I wish I knew for sure ,I doubt anybody can give you an accurate answer

that is 100% guaranteed

maybe the best option is to spread it around a bit

regular savers account ,maybe some in a euro account , some shiny shiny

and a few premium bonds ,who knows you may get lucky

I personally have no interest in getting RICH

but I do want to stop the jackals from thieving what I've worked hard for

have you thought of investing in some cannabis seeds ?

not to make you rich but if the SHTF at least you can keep a smile on your face

Is there something inherently 'anti-socialist' in the idea of saving up to buy somewhere to live? Or are you hoping for a complete socialist model where the state provides all the housing.

I'd save for a year and buy 9,000 lottery tickets. In the mad world my generation has created for your generation, nine grand is as much use as a chocolate teapot.

If we're in for deflation, cash ISA probably. If we're in for hyperinflation, gold. What are we in for? No idea!

invest in naked girls

I've made a few deposits :lol:

750 a month depends on your risk profile and time scales and how much time you want to manage your money

Spread your risk where you lose you gain

No one can really predict what is going to happen, it's just educated guess work.

What problem with your values? Everyone should own their means of life, just not other peoples means of life

Quite possibly, although I won't get used to poor spelling, grammar and syntax.

Well i do apologise for my grammer and poor spelling, I think you are currently missed on some other forum where grammer nazis can complain that teh intaweb has kild teh engrish

I will try harder in future.

Thanks for the replys.

To answer a few:

Valid point, although I do believe we could be more collective as a race. I have enjoyed myself, and believe in paying for what you want, however certain people drop through the cracks of society that we could do more for.

Let's get it right

No I think i have come across wrong in my orignal post, I believe 100% that you should pay your own way, as for spending my 9 grand on the stupid tax, I may consider this :)

futurepaul

The only naked girls now is my wife, although i have tried to suggest others, but for some reason she seems offended ??

Everyone else, thanks, I appreciate the feedback

I have currently about 10K savings, and want to maybe split some of my future savings into medium risk and low risk, but you have given me something to look into, so thanks.

Hope I can contribute to this excellent site.

Come one sibleyslovechild I bet your seething at my grammatical (and spelling errors)

once again thanks everyone
