In a couple weeks or so, it will be ok to stay boxed up until January won't it? I want to get it as a present for then whilst I have money now.

Depending on the model you get you can pretty much guarantee it's going to have already been sitting on some shelf in some warehouse for a couple of years already.

There's a joke to be made out of that phrase. I just wish I was awake enough to think of it.

Put the money away somewhere. Buy it in January. It'll probably be cheaper, and the warranty will start from that date instead of now.

I'd still like to hear it :D.

And Sheepinator. That makes sense, I might just do that, thanks.

I'm with Sheep... Make a new bank account (using online banking)... With as much interest as possible (won't be much - Broken Britain and all)... Use that cash when you want to buy... Esp. if it's January as there may be sales...

I have about 15 bank accounts online - all with cash for different things :)

I have a dedicated gaming bank account - all my savings for games / consoles go in there each month... After bills, rainy day stuff, car, visas etc... All the important ones get done first. :D

That makes a lot of sense too, I could do that, me and my partner have a Joint account for bills/rent etc, I could make a third account for gaming/hobbies, all these good ideas flying around the place.

What bank are you with, RBS? (The only reason I said that, is because you're from Scotland :P) I'm with Lloyds Tsb, I can have multiple accounts with that?

Bank of Scotland / Halifax - I hate them...

Hoping to move to Ulster bank soon. :D

You can't make all these accounts normally (well, you could but it would take aaaages)... So, it's best to do it online.

Create new account - online saver (or something to that effect)... Has helped me a lot with budgeting and saving for stuff.

We have separate accounts for bills, rent, housing deposit savings, visa stuff, games, dog... :) Transfer everything on pay day to each account - they have no cards attached to them so I never spend the money on stupid stuff!
