Author Topic: Disposible income: Where does punting rank in your priorities?  (Read 4531 times)

Was just thinking about this earlier when I was contemplating either buying a new guitar or having a couple of punts, where does punting rank in terms of spending your disposable income? 

Do you prioritise punting before paying the bills?  Have you ever got into debt due to punting?

For me personally, the bills need paid first (mortgage, gas, elec, Sky, phone etc), then food, I like to travel so booking trips away comes next after that (usually with the Mrs so punting whilst on holiday is pretty much a non starter).  After that's taken care of I look to punting and my other vices.

Get that guitar. They're very curvy and you only pay once.  :)  Although new strings are £10 extra.

I'm actually going to have to put punting on the backburner next month for that very reason, need a bass guitar - can't be bothered to program the bass lines anymore, it just sounds shite in the mix.

I used to spend what I considered to be a fortune on punting. On reflection it was merely a drop in the ocean compared to the other kind of punting which has over the past five years got me into debt far more than sex punting ever did. :cry:

Not to drag this off topic.... but I bought a Squier Jaguar short scale bass a few months back on ebay, tried one when I was in USA in 2011 and seriously considered bringing one home, but decided it was more hassle than it was worth for essentially a cheapo bass.  Great bass for the cash and I find it much easier to play than a full size, which I could never get used to the neck scale.  I'm not a bass player, but it's a good bit of kit to have around the house and for the occasional gig where I stand in with some basic bass lines.

A Les Paul Junior is calling my name, to go with my Esquire and Taylor acoustic.  Then that's it. Honest.

Sorry to hear that NIK, gambling I presume?  I think punting and gambling have alot of similarities in terms of the euphoria of winning/good punt and the lows of losing/bad punts, both rather expensive hobbies too.

I have never spent more on punting than I could easily afford, my number one priority, after bills, would always be holidays.  ;)

Thanks, I'll give the Squiers a good bash next time I'm south of the Firth of Forth. They do seem perfectly priced for what I need a bass for.

Right, back to where punting ranks in my priorities. At the moment, quite high (good thing I've got an overdraft I can exhaust). Paying bills first goes without saying, but so far my making music is the only other thing ranking higher - I reckon that's just the novelty that punting still has for me. I've even refrained from buying the amount of single malt that I usually tend to buy, and believe me, that's quite the sacrifice! :blush:

It works a bit differently for me - I set myself personal goals with financial rewards for hitting targets I set. That determines how much "pocket money" I get. I spend that money anyway I choose and it's often on punting.

Punting has a lower priority for me than it used to. In my youth, it took up a ridiculous proportion of my disposable income, but now I'm working part-time and winding down towards retirement, and also the desire isn't as strong as it was, so I'm spending far less than I used to.

being a tight bastard im extremely unwilling to spend  money on anything and save about a grand a month so could punt more if i didnt exercise some restraint, im saving to buy a flat to rent out, preferably to a hooker for obvious reasons.

Offline Scoobs

I don't punt enough for it to have much of an effect on my pocket.

Once or twice a month is fine for me.

I wouldn't let it get me in the shit finacially though.  I'd just remind myself that you can beat an egg but you can't beat a wank.

I find it hard in my area to find a girl worthy of the risk   so my punting has taken a very low priority of late ...

My mortgage is my number one priority & at the moment I'm taking advantage of the low interest rate & overpaying alot.  I'm no financial guru but I know these low interest rates won't last forever so I'd be a fucking idiot not to pay off as much as possible now.

I still have a fair punting budget left though, so if someone really takes my fancy & I will book them  :)

That's a good plan actually, my mortgage payments are very affordable at the minute so should really be topping these up with some of my disposable income whilst rates are so low. Cheers for the tip, I'll speak to my mate who sorted my mortgage on Monday.  :thumbsup:

One of the fluffies on auto-censored posted this on 31st December ---------

Total for 2012 = 42 punts with 13 girls and 71¼ punting hours = £8550

Is that really something to brag about, personally I don't think so.    :unknown:

How would your stats look jim?

I have never kept detailed "accounts" on my punting but a rough guess would be £1200 a year, in other words £100 a month, if I ever manage to find a gem who lives local to me that could increase but I doubt that will happen.  :(

Offline Scoobs

I spent £1,065 on 9 punts in 2012 which is fuck all really when you consider that it's a hobby.

Fuck knows how much I spend on lager.

what i resent about punting is the fact i have to work for over a day to earn the £100 after tax for a one hour punt, which has the potential to be a waste of money after which you've got nothing  to show for it apart from an empty ball sack. :unknown:

Strong this.

The thing that bothers me- as cactus jock was saying- is with a material posession like a guitar it is something you see, feel, taste and touch- its a tangible object/possession.

With an Escort its like the equivalent of doing drugs. You get an amazing hit but afterwards its just money gone up in smoke- and you don't vividly remember the encounter.

The morning after a prostitute encounter my brain cannot tell the difference between a real Escort and the fantasy I had not long afterwards  :unknown:

Does your Mrs's know you punt?

When I have lots of extra cash all over the place then I see more wg's, if money is tight I wouldn't see these girls.

My experience is quite different - I still have vivid memories of punts that took place 20 years ago. It's why, for me, porn and webcams are no comparison.

After a good punt I feel fantastic for days.

Offline what-a man

At the end of every month, I always make sure I save a fair bit from my salary and after paying the bills any leftover is spent on punting. I dont feel that I am throwing money away if I have saved something at the end of every month.

I don't resent it if I have a good experience, when the punt goes wrong I feel bitter for days after ------- a similar feeling to being mugged.   :thumbsdown:
