What to spent/use money on/for?
I'm level 19 now and well I don't know what to spent cash on. Any ideas? I got 16000. Its pretty easy to earn money and because its so easy to earn it makes it less challenging to get something.

I don't think I fel this way in Obelivion somehow I do in Skyrim.

Yes, it's very boring to have nothing to buy, we don't need to buy nothing in store, we don't need to buy food, ect...,

the only thing i use my money, it's for buying all the house i can in this wold, and all the thing they go inside, and even if i try to take only some money and don't sell nothing, i have more than 100000 and neer all the house in the world, i pass my time to run after the poor to give her money Ha ha ha, it very far of the reality...

in oblivion the system are different, you are limited in pound, not in skyrim, and in skyrim the economical system are not good...,

i begin to think to return playing oblivion...

Buy materials for smithing.
Or role play as a NPC and eat food and buy clothes and stuff.

Or download mods that make prices more realistic and a ''hardcore mod'' similar to New Vegas one, that should give you something to spend, + maybe mods that improve merchant's stock with better and more expensive items

You can use your gold to help with skills learnt from others. Like smithing from a blacksmith or spells when you get to meet the mages. They will give you lessons for which a charge is made. Some of these can be quite expensive. You can also buy certain weapons or spells, etc.

Another expense will be buying houses when you are made a Thane. These can cost $5,000 or more when outfitting,

A decent amt of Skyrim cash can be spent furnishing the Hearthfire homes if you have this DLC. I was bored finding items to "make" furniture etc and found it easier to pay for the stewards to furnish everything albeit at a snails pace.

Meh Smithing supplies and homes are about the best investments you can make between lvl 6-20 as you can find armor on any bandit and if you focus on the Blacksmith perk you can get to 70% skill lvl before you reach level 15 and create steel, Dwarven, and Elven weapons and armor
other then that I would spend money on some ward and restoration spells which in Oblivion was a common strategy for both the player and non mage warrior NPC's to heal themselves in combat

The reason you felt that way in Oblivion is because you either had to buy all your speels and weapons/armor or loot them so you were always spending money for something!

Houses, training and master spells if you're a mage.

The occasional item you can't craft, too: I just found a necklace with 70% fire resistance at Benethor's, you can't craft something that good barring exploits with fortify loops. And 70% fire resistance for a vampire, it's quite interesting, let me tell you.

Spend your septims on whatever you want...its a game after all...indulge yourself, buy some skooma, eat some leg of goat and drink potions until you see spots.

the very good house in Solitude costs 20,000 gold. other houses can be 8000 Grand Wazoo says, there are plenty of things you can spend your gold on..use your imagination!
