This is coming from a 18 year old... who lives with his parents... hasn't really been anywhere...yet. But I am the cheapest person I know haha, not as cheap as I was a couple years ago, but I'll tell you some of the things I did do... and still do.

First off, I wouldn't think that spending 5-10 pounds on lottery tickets would be a good investment, maybe just putting the 5-10 pounds itself into savings would be better.

If you go and buy groceries buy the generic brand, not the name brands, for the most part it tastes basically the same. Maybe try taking shorter showers, turn the TV/Lights off when you leave the room, I really don't know how much water and electricity costs but it may make a bit of a difference.

Ok well my minds not working too well right now lol, thats all I can think of...

Instead of sticking with my job next year, I'm quitting it, and am starting my own website. It will cost about £600, but I think running my own site will be very enjoyable, educational, and I can spend all day every day running it if I wanted, so I don't have any time to spend money.

This way, the potential of my earnings is 100% down to me and my efforts, and if I put the time and effort in, I should be able to get a goot return (I hope!)

Quoting philo

Bad idea IMO. Start the web site and then, if it in fact is so successful, quit the job. You have to establish your priorities: either you are saving for a trip, or you are starting a business; trying to do both at the same time means that one or both will suffer. (Just my opinion and my experience.)
