    Re: What did you do with your first paycheck?

    Probably paid rent and bought food. Barely. (first job out of college, after finishing an "unpaid" internship)

    3 years later, working full-time seasonally in the resort industry. Probably won't be until after grad school that I'll find myself in a salaried position.

    Paid off the new laptop and TV I bought in the weeks between graduation and starting my job. Nothing too exciting!

    Re: What did you do with your first paycheck?

    Bills and living. I can't wait to get myself a car I can be proud of and take people in...maybe next year. That is unless I convince myself to pay off more debt instead.

    Nothing. Most of it went to bills and saved the rest.


    Just Win.

    What I've learned is some of you got very good paying jobs immediately out of school or some of you had just had a lot to learn about budgeting money.

    Saved it for the down payment on a house that I bought the same week I was hired.

    Re: What did you do with your first paycheck?

    My first paycheck out of being an undergrad was a grad student stipend. It wasn't enough to do anything besides pay rent and help cover moving expenses.

    My first paycheck out of grad school went towards moving expenses for moving from Raleigh, NC to Seattle, WA, plus rent (which is over twice what I paid in Raleigh!).

    Also, I'm married so doing fun stuff with money is pretty much impossible.

    I was a paperboy in Des Moines during they early 1970's. I started a "Floppy savings account" at the bank.
