I do alright pay wise, managed to get together some savings, had some tax issues and got ass raped massively, so they all went. Also split up with my ex at around the time we probably would have moved out. Been saving up loads lately, but just invested it all in a new business venture.
I get a lot of stick on here for still living at home. I'm far from getting a free ride at home, although it definitely makes life easier. Besides, moving out due to uni and moving out properly on your own accord in the same city is massively different.
Now I've pretty much got zero savings (again). Will most likely move out in the new year depending on a few factors.

Anyway, on topic… like someone else said, stopped buy vpower, and my cars actually going up for sale soon. Going to get something cheaper in cost and to run over the winter, maybe an older 3series diesel or golf TDI. Then re-buy my car again, but a heavily modified version.

Hope the business venture pays off! Is it a risky one?
