    Great replies everyone, keep them coming!

    Those of you who'd use it to pay your bills or food shopping, is that because things are tight and you have to or are things ok and you just want to, to save?

    Our twitter followers are saying similar

    Well I could pay off the bill slower (it's not accruing interest or anything), but I'd rather be rid of it sooner rather than later.

    So things are fairly tight, but they are by no means dire (and I don't want them to be either!).
    February wins: Theatre tickets

    I'd buy tickets for OH and me for a show or panto on Christmas Eve (matinee) and a few drinks afterwards to get us into the festive mood.

    It would be spent on paint, as I'm decorating my flat.

    I would get it put into euros for my holiday next year, that way I can't spend it!

    I'd put £80 toward paying off a credit card and spend the other £20 on a Chinese takeway for my family, as it's something we love but have cut way back on due to the state of our finances.
    Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none.

    I'd go and see my other half. It costs about £50 on the train and the other half I'd spend on a nice meal out for the two of us :)

    Stick it in my emergency fund for things like broken cookers, washing machine etc - I already budget enough to be able to cover regular expenses such as food/rent/phone/gas/electric.
