I'm 17, How can I "Hide" or invest my savings?

Basically I'm nearly 18, I've worked all through school and been frugal as shit, and now I'm at University with 5 grand in savings, and another grand in a spending account for gas/car repairs/clothing/food.

Lately everyone around me has been annoying as fuck, I've never let anyone know that I have money saved, they all assume I'm too stupid and spend it on alcohol and weed like the rest of them. My brother burns through 100% of his salary on meth (i'm not joking) my mum has a gambling addiction, I haven't seen my dad in ages, my girlfriend works full time but is always asking me for money, I don't budge when it comes to this. Basically I just pretend like I'm living off the $100 cash i have in my wallet, which I am for the most part.

The thing is a few times my mother has tried to access my bank account or make passes at me like I owe her for raising me and putting a roof over my head etc. etc.

A few times I've had to show her my bank statement for a separate account i've created purely so that when I get sent statements it shows I've only got $50 to my name.

I'd really like to invest my 5 grand instead of trying to hide it from the pieces of shit around me. Honestly, I don't really expect a whole bunch of replies, I just want to know, what would you do if you had a spare 5 grand, with enough money to keep you sane till the end of the year (When I might be moving out)

  • Hey bro! I feel ya. Your situation must not be easy. I'm 22 and have 15 grand in savings. I too have the same questions as you do. I think I'm going to invest 5 to 8 grands in stocks and will keep the other half for now. If I am having success in trading, I might as well invest all of it! Hope this can help a little!  ̶  Synergy_Dave Oct 06 at 02:01
