Spending money wisely?..... Thats the way we always want to do... but for me the ideal spender saves money off the top, covers his/her basic needs, stay out of dept, gets real pleasure from planned, prudent purchases. .... I have to admit spenders like me can be out of control in countless ways because of our economical situation in our countries. I just fail to pay attention, or sometimes spend in hopes of spending self esteem. How about you guys are you a good spender?

I try to be a wise spender. I too often don't though. I am a compulsive buyer and will most often buy things I really don't need. So, I walk around the store and put things back after I have thought about it. I do feel better when I buy things or go shopping. As sad as that is! I try to be a good spender and buy frugally and not overspend on items that I don't need.

i'm not a big spender, i feel guilty spending money since im not working, when ever i compare the $$$ to peso its a lot of money if you think about it, i'd rather keep the money and send it to my family back there in the philippines.

It's nice to hear from you coz maybe in your country you have a lot of items that are sale with very good quality here in our place there are some sale too but not that affordable sometimes the quality is not good also. Thanks for sharing.

Until I reached 40 I was a spendthirft. I used to spend more than I earn. Later we realised the deficit was quite huge and then we cut the uncessary expenses to bring it to breakeven. Now a small savings started. Being economics students, I was a firm believer in definit financing.

I am a very thrifty and a very wise spender. I think about 10 times before finally deciding if the item should be bought or not. I also make sure I live on a budget. Sometimes, I spend on buying things I dont need but those have very minimal amount. Just for enjoyment.
