    If you had £1000 to spend what would you get?

    Lots of little things or something big? Perhaps there is something you especially want or need like a washing machine?

    There isn't anything I need to buy so I would probably have an extra spending spree in M&S

    A few years ago we ended up with about £160 of M&S vouchers. I bought a new top and my husband got a new belt and we didn't need anything else.

    The nearest M&S is quite a drive from us (we live in a rural area) and so we decided to spend the rest of the vouchers on food rather than drive back again. It was just over £100.00

    We bought loads of meat and fish (things too expensive to buy normally) and put it all in the freezer. Now I don't eat meat, or fish and so it meant my husband was eating posh nosh for about 4 months.

    I would use the money to buy a piano (we are currently saving up for one).

    We currently have an M&S thing and love the food hall. My youngest daughter is in there weekly, buying various bits and pieces, as she works opposite there

    Probably a bill for more than £1000 for something in the post the very same day knowing my luck.
    Examples might include but are not limited to: boiler blown up; ransom demand for dog; car blown up; house emptied by robbers; our tree falling on next door's house; sump hole appearing and devouring our house ......... there's bound to be something.

    Failing that how many jelly beans would that buy?

    OK I'd spend it down the sump too.

    I'm a pretty sharp operator when it comes to a fast buck, so I would probably buy a thousand items from poundland and sell them for £2 each..

    A fitbit, a new cheap laptop, a couple of dresses I like in the Monsoon sale, and a couple of blood tests for things that I'm fretting about but are too minor to bother the GP with.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    If i had to spend it? I need a new computer for starters. I would then look at what might be needed in the house. Then maybe get a few video games, then maybe get something for my dad. Not necessarily in that order.
