7. Buy that incred piece of clothing

Ninety percent of the time you should spend your money on experiences, not things -- but once in a while save that $150 and use it to buy that incredible coat you've lusted after for months or that watch you've wanted since university. It will literally make you feel like the most amazing person in the world as you strut out of the shop. May as well do it while you only have to think about funding yourself.

5. Live on your own.

Nothing feels more independent than moving out of home, and renting your own place. It may seem daunting to begin with but it's a great way to learn about life early on. You will need to learn how to manage your money, look after yourself and of course the biggest benefit is not having to hide how drunk you are to your parents after a night out on the tiles...

Creating future opportunities in job interviews

Job interviews are an opportunity for employers to find whether you're a good match for them, but it is also your time to see if the role is a good fit for you.

When you are sure the answer is "no", you can simply back out, or you can see it as another networking opportunity. If you like the company, you'll want to maintain the relationship so that you can become the first choice in another role.
