we all love to spend! when we have money, we try hard to fight the urge to spend because we know that if we just let our self-discipline go down the drain, our money would also go down the drain. me, im not really a big spender, i try hard to be very frugal but i must admit, its hard to resist spending sometimes especially if the malls are screaming "SALE!".

I've never been a big spender because that's not how I was raised. We are always looking for bargains and sales and almost everything I buy was not bought at full price. As a result, we have been able to save for college and retirement. If that's not motivation enough to be thrifty, I don't know what is.

I can be quite a big spender at times, but it is on the rare occasions. Overall I don't spend too much money I'd say, probably though cause I don't have that much either :P.
