So my buddy and I are getting a referral check from our apartment for $300.

We've both decided we are NOT saving it. Purely throw away cash.

We are just having issues figuring out what to do with it... (first world problems)

What would you do with it if saving/investing it was out of the question?

A few things to keep in mind:

1) We are both turning 25 next week

2) We are both going to Vegas in 2 weeks (bachelor party not for our birthdays)

I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

I like the direction you're going with this...

I put that in the category of "saving/investing"... it's a bit too "grown up" of an option.

Get up to 90 on this highway, then throw it in reverse.

I like this suggestion BUT my roomie couldn't care less about renting an exotic... I on the other hand (if I had an extra G laying around) would LOVE to rent a Lambo... The first time I went to Vegas I had to take a pic of an orange Murcielago with a huge RENT ME sign in the windshield... I've had a weird obession with Lambo's since childhood (first AOL screen name was OrangeDiablo7) and the only other forum I frequent is a Lambo enthusiast site.

I feel ya there man. I have somewhat of an obsession with Lambo's as well. Funny, last time I went to Vegas I had a buddy snap a picture of me in front of a Ferrari (Rent Me sign in the background, cropped out ).

Walk out of your apartment, turn left. Give money to first homeless person you find.

You won't have $300, but you won't if you blow it anyway.

Dine out on the story. If you tell it well you should easily recoup the cash in kudos and sex.

Get a cup of coffee at a small diner. Leave $100 tip.

Go to a park and pay the ice cream truck $100, for the next customers to have free ice cream til it runs out.

Spend the last $100 on a nice bottle of something in Vegas. Or gamble it away.

I do like good karma... the part of ATL I live in there aren't very many -if any- homeless folks so I would have to put forth effort to travel into the city to pursue that...

Once again, love the good karma this could bring.

Put it all on black and let it ride three times.
