Hi everyone I’ve been given quite a lot of pip and will have almost 5k backdated too .
what can I spend my pip on ? and would it be really bad if I spent all my backdated pip at once ?

    Anything you want to, and if you want to blow it all in one go so be it, but it's never a bad idea to have a little put by for a rainy day.

    Thank you woodbine . 
    I never thought I would get any let alone all this and I’d really like to give some to charities too .

    @letitbe Congrats on getting awarded and getting the backpay! I agree that it's nice to pop some away for a rainy day :)
