I am absolutely a spender, when I have a dime I will find a way to spend it. I just feel like when I have money I can just buy whatever I want and I will never run out but sure enough, I do! I am a crazy spender, but I am looking to start saving my money because I have a mexico trip I am taking in July! What about you, are you a spender or a saver?

i am a saver yet a spender when it comes to buy things for the house. i am definitely not an impulsive buyer though because being a student i have to take care of the fact that it's my mom's money and i have to control myself,though she lets me buy anything unless and untill she feels it's really a waste of money. i really get charged when i see the decorative pieces and the furniture and house-hold items. lately i have begun buying a lot of clothes for myself.

I've become a stingy saver.I've always been that way cuz there have been a lot of times i was broke and for a guy it just cant be that way.So i thought that i should figure out a way to get outta this.The only solution --was to to turn into a saver. I dont think just twice before i spend on something,i think about it the whole day.lol. *embarrassed* But its actually good to be this way,you get to buy whatever you wanted cuz you have the dough all the time and what more do you need? So I'm happy to be this way. Things will probably change when i start working in the next three months cuz I'm finishing college this may.I might turn into a spender,who knows.

I am a saver. When I have extra money, I spend it. Since I have to pay for mostly my own stuff, such as my car I have to save up as much money as I can because I need to pay it each month, and if I dont pay it, I can not drive. Therefore I would love to be a spender, but since I cant I have to be a saver. It's ok to be a spender once in awhile but when you need to pay for things, you need to learn to save it, and learn to see if you want it or need that something your going to buy.

I'm a saver, I pinch whenever possible. I clip coupons, I make my grocery list according to the sales paper. At the end of the day we empty our pockets of all change into a bowl on the dryer, we refuse to spend any change in order to do this, every couple months we roll up the money ( we average about $25-$30 a month )and place it into our savings account. My husband on the other hand, he likes to spend, but then I do all the bills and shopping, so he never sees how much we actually spend out each month (quite honestly, I don't think he wants to know).

it depends on how much i really have. unless i have more than what i need i dont spend lavishly. i am a saver too because i have kids and i would require enough money when they get older.

I am definitely a spender that would like to be more of a saver. It is funny because my husband is exactly the opposite and would rather save than spend on anything. I guess we probably balance each other out and that is why we are able to manage. This was a good question to ask.
