    yes but I don't know when I'm going to need new things! I'm not even that far in the story due to doing lots of side missions. Who knows when I might need hacking to get through a door and have to spend lots of points! :)

    +1 to saving perk points. I try to keep one or two spares on-hand at all times in case I need to boost hacking/lockpicking or something else that I otherwise couldn't have predicted well enough to appropriately prioritize.
