Someone asked me this question in the group discussion recently. But I had no perfect answer, as I didn't remember what I did with it. I got job in a city which is away from my family. I spent that money to my monthly expenses and the rest of the money I gave it to my father. I request you to go back to early days when you start career in the real world after your studies. Recall How did you spend your first salary ?

Don't remember. But I was already married, so I probably used it to pay bills.

I remember very well, because I started to work at the end of November, so I got my first salary just before Christmas. I bought gifts for my parents, my family and my boyfriend. I was so glad to be able to spend "MY" money.

Hmm. Good looking dress is always required. We need to be very careful while we are working for any company.

Invest half of it in Saving, Opening retirement fund acc, taking a swing at mutual funds, RDs/FDs ( or other better avenues ). The other half would be spent on family with the remaining amount donated to the needy. That's what am gonna do when i start my job at SBI

I remember well, I bought a Pierre Cardin pant. Is something I always wanted, but couldn't afford before. And I will never forget, because three days after I purchase it, I tear it down, with an old nail, that was comming out from one table in an old book shelf in my room. The rest of the money, well, after hearing the scolding from my father, I gave the money to my family, and for me, only enough for the bus, not the brightest decision I ever made.

I had my own businesses since I was 12 years old and I saved most of it to buy a car when Iturned 16 years old. I did waste some on junk food.

I honestly cannot remember. This was around 50 years ago, so despite remembering many things about my first employment I have no idea what I actually did with that specific wage.
