What to get?

Postby Miami in Ohio? » Tue Dec 26, 2006 2:22 pm

For the holidays, I received:

$350 cash
$60 in Best Buy Gift Cards
$30 in Wal-Mart Gift Cards

I am a Freshman in College and my mom told me to save my money for when I really need it. I thought about buying a Wii, but I live in a very small dorm and wouldn't want to worry about it being stolen. Any suggestions?

In the past, I have owned a PSP (sold it for money) and a DS Lite (returned it after 2 weeks for money) but now that I actually have some cash what should I do?

Thanks!

add the cash to your bank account to make your college $$ rationing a little more flexible.

Saving money is overrated. :-b

I would get a Wii, but I think it's best to weigh your options first before spending rather than buying whatever on impulse. ;-D

You need a lot of room to play some of the Wii sports games... might be tight if your dorm room is really that small. Although I would still whole-heartedly recommend taking Art's advice.

Yeah, right. I must've spent $3000 just for myself the last couple of months in unplanned purchases. :-b

please....get them offline and dont spend anything! i dont know if you plan on working during college, but if you do, businesses around colleges do not pay anything, knowing that they dont have to with college kids. you really do need money at school, because you'll want to eat out alot other than the school food. not to mention on drinking and bars and stuff. i would save as much as you can, but maybe buy some things for your dorm room to make it feel home-like... ;-D
