Are you saving up for anything? Can you save up for anything? How much money do you have so far? What do you want to get?

Just some simple questions. I couldn't find anything while searching for the word 'save'.

Uhh... nothing in particular. Just saving up for later, if I might really want something.

I just bought a $150 camera, though, and my source of money isn't exactly.. steady, so I don't have enough for anything big right now.

Only a month 'til my birthday, though. So if I get money then I might have enough for something good. Maybe a new computer.. or something.

I never spend my money unless I have something I really want to get, so I guess I'm always saving up for the next thing I want. I don't get any allowance and haven't started working yet, so it isn't exactly easy.. but I'll get there eventually. I've only got $50 NZD right now and I'll probably get an iPod once I have enough money.

I just bought a new computer, which is win. It cost..about $210 dollars total to get running. It is pretty neat. I still need to spend $60 on a HDD and more memory. (Yes, I found a 320 GB HDD for 38.99 and 2 GB memory for 20.99, both compatible.)

- $40.00 for a new HDD
- $20.00 for more memory.

Then, I want to save up for a netbook for school and travel, which will probably cost around 200-300 dollars.

Saving Up:
- $40.00 for a 320GB HDD.
- $20.00 for 2GB of RAM.
- $200.00 through $300.00 for a decent netbook.

I just bought a DSi and Diamond with money that I saved from work. Took me two paychecks. It cost a grand total of $218.18. But it was worth every penny:D

I haven't saved up for anything in a while (probably because I haven't had an income for the past three months), but when I do, I always end up spending what I've saved on something else before I actually have enough to buy what I wanted in the first place.

The most expensive thing I've ever saved up for was an $800 electric drum set, of which I only payed about $300 up front. My dad payed for the rest, and I just gave him a little out of my paycheck every week until I'd payed it off.

I'm saving my money for a preorder of GS:DS. Once the US release date is announced, I'll pretty much go to Gamestop and buy my preorder, heheheeheheeheh.

July 14th, 2009, 8:26 AM
I have too many stuff to save up on.
-150 euros on a DSi
-250 euros on a Wii
-450 Euros on a phone

Its going to take me say 20 years?

July 14th, 2009, 8:29 AM
Saving up for various items for Oshkosh, future 360 games, etc. :D I'm usually always saving.

July 14th, 2009, 8:32 AM
Currently saving a little cash to contribute towards the iPod Touch I want for my birthday in September :)

July 14th, 2009, 9:20 AM
Yep. Saving up for the London Expo, and failing at it. I already spent £40 of what I was supposed to be saving on [Prototype] :/

I'm always saving money, but never for anything in particular. Just in case I suddenly decide I want to buy something. I'll probably buy some more 360 games at some point.

Hello, gentleman.

I never save my money because I'm an irresponsible child on a pokemon forum. : (

July 14th, 2009, 1:03 PM
I hardly ever spend money, though when I do, it'll be a splurge on several games/ clothes/ whatever. I have a nice little amount in my account from the work I did over Christmas (plus redundancy bonuses, yay Woolworths), plus some other stuff that's untouched. :/ I prefer to wait until my birthday and stuff to get the things I want, then I don't have to pay for them in a sense. XDDD;

July 14th, 2009, 6:03 PM
I'm quite good at saving, but I'm not saving for anything in particular. Just letting money accumulate.

It's good, because it means when I see something expensive that I want, I've already done the saving for it. ^_^

Well I am very good of saving. I am trying to save for a Wii and a plane ticket. Well a plane ticket so I can see my parents in New Jersey. I usually will save for stuff I want other times it will be something I need. If it is a emergency.

July 14th, 2009, 10:37 PM
I ticked specific, because it sort of is.

I save all year for my car insurance, MOT and tax.
Saving for a deposit on a house in the future
I'm opening a separate savings account for something I'm buying my boyfriend when he goes to uni =x

I'm incredibly careful with my money ._.;

July 14th, 2009, 11:43 PM
Saving to have a new computer tower custom built.

July 15th, 2009, 5:39 AM
If I had money I would... well, I mean got it anually or something, but since I don't. I just... don't save. XD;

July 15th, 2009, 6:20 AM
I always end up spending what I've saved on something else before I actually have enough to buy what I wanted in the first place.

That's what I do too. -_-

I get impatient and blow it all out on something else. As a result I never have more than $10 to my name..

July 15th, 2009, 12:11 PM
I'm currently saving money for upcoming birthday gifts and Christmas gifts.

July 15th, 2009, 7:55 PM
I will get a job once I am 16, then I will save save save, on a new DS!
or maybe a computer, I do need a new one.
All my stuff breaks too quickly.

July 16th, 2009, 12:00 PM
Yea, for a laptop and a car lol

Well, currently, I'm saving up my money, but I don't know why I'm saving it. I have a feeling that I'm going to use the money I'm saving in the future though.

July 22nd, 2009, 8:13 PM
I'm getting better at saving money - restraining myself from buying stuff I don't need, cutting back on my gaming spending until I get through a bit of my backlog, and just in general setting more aside for saving.

July 22nd, 2009, 8:38 PM
I'm saving money, for a new laptop and/or a gaming console/handheld (either PS2, PS3 or PSP).
After that, I'm planning to save up to get enough money to donate to PC and be a PC Supporter. \o/

I end up spending the money I save most of the time, though. >_>
Which is why I only have about $20 at the moment. D:

July 22nd, 2009, 9:49 PM
Right now on nothing, but I might have to end up saving money on HGSS if I do get them, or even other games that will satisfy me until I get the money to, again, but HGSS.

July 22nd, 2009, 10:31 PM
I will be saving for a XBOX360 and Wii(Black) but I have shopping to do til then.

July 22nd, 2009, 11:14 PM
I was recently saving for a laptop, but one day my mom saw one really cheap and decided to pay for the entire thing (except for $200 from my dad and the $60 she previously owed me). I wantedto use my money to buy a couple games, but they convinced me to save it for when we go to Florida in late August. That's probably a good idea, because I know my parents are gonna pull a "we're not buying you that, we just spent $800 on a laptop".

au bon
July 22nd, 2009, 11:15 PM
Me? Save money? Haha. The thought of me saving money for anything makes me laugh. But I'm going to have to come college.

July 24th, 2009, 8:16 AM
Yes, i can save up money lol. I am saving up for a laptop because I don't like going into my sisters room each time I want to go on the computer lo. So far I have 200 dollars saved up :D

July 31st, 2009, 4:53 PM
I am very stingy with my money because donating money is a taboo here, in my view. I don't buy unless I fancy what I buy and only if I had at least twice the amount needed or if it is not my money to keep.

Of course I saved a lot.

August 1st, 2009, 4:45 AM
I'm not saving up for anything because I have no money. :(

August 1st, 2009, 4:50 AM
I am not saving for anything but I need to be lol

August 1st, 2009, 5:42 AM
I'm saving for a nice big Mac desktop and Adobe Creative Suite 4, as I only have Photoshop CS3, Illustrator CS3, Dreamweaver CS3 (which I haven't touched in ages) and a couple of Windows laptops.

I'm hoping to sell some art or something to help it go faster.

Woot, I am a great saver. I've been saving quite a while now, with the occasional spendings on clothes etc, but I like saving my money for the future.

August 5th, 2009, 12:41 AM
This Ipod Styled thing. XD £69.99 or £59.99 depending on memory.

August 5th, 2009, 12:49 AM
hmm im currently waiting to get paid back some money but ill save that up til i have $200 then buy a new psp(the ff7/dissidia themed one =D)

then after that i want a tb of memory for my computer =P

August 5th, 2009, 4:21 AM
I'm just sort of saving in general. Not for anything specific (save the day I pay my parents back for my education) but I guess right now I'm saving up so I can pay my rent for the next year. I've got about $3 or 4 thousand right now which should last me the year with groceries if no major expenses come up. D: Then I'm also saving up somewhat for the few video games I have to buy this year, haha.

When I think of my spending habits I always sit and wonder how I manage to save so much. I'm not exactly really careful with my money but I've never had an overspending problem or anything so I guess I'm not so bad. XD; I raaaarely buy "big" things so I've always got plenty in my account.

Yes, I started saving money since last Christmas to buy two skateboards. I have 154.76 dolalrs, atm.

August 5th, 2009, 8:49 PM
I'm great at saving money. All I have to do is not let my parents know I have it, or they'll store it away in the bank of Mishy-no-touchliness. I save all change including pennies. I took a fraction of my penny savings and exchanged it for bills. I got $25.00 back XDDD. I also save any money I get from foreign countries. I have mexican bills that I recieved from my step dad, canadian money, and even some leftover money from the Dominican Republic. Unfortunately, that means nothing in America.

I spend my money when it hits about $500 if it isn't taken away first. It's usually spent on clothes for school and hanging out and sports and such, but it's sometimes spent on something like a mic or tablet. :3

August 5th, 2009, 9:41 PM
I am saving up for an apartment, I figure. Either an apartment or some other thing to help me in life. I suppose I have to spend it on college, so I'm saving for more college payments.

And I currently have $4,000 saved.

I save money because I like looking at it accumulate. Yeah I'll spend it when I feel like it.

August 12th, 2009, 1:37 AM
I'm currently saving up for a new laptop. Yay~

August 14th, 2009, 10:21 AM
I'm not really saving for anything specifically other than school. University is really expensive... I just like having money in my account and knowing that if I really want something I can buy it. I also need money to pay for rent and groceries while at school. I have...enough for a semester of school in my account right now.

August 15th, 2009, 3:22 AM
The laptop in my signature is what I'm saving up for. $2799 AUD.
