(REPLY HONESTLY)To day I was at the local market.I had a budget of $5-8 Suddenly it started to rain heavily.it was really big problem to market in rain. But to my surprise I found that prices of fishes and vegetable suddenly got low.i was really happy as the prices slashed to less than half . I made my mind and purchased heavily.At the end I was happy to spend money.Share your experience.Do you also like to spend money or it depends on other factors ?

Honestly, I like to spend money and more stuffs that I like or that I need. But, if I have a budget in my mind, I try to spend within that limit. Every month the day I get salary, I wish to spend money to buy something for my family. If its a bonus, you know I will purchase heavily ;) Anytime I will happy to spend money unless I have been fooled by someone.

If the case is like yours, then I will do what you do, buy things because the price slashed and it's food, we need to eat everyday and we can always keep that food in refrigerator or freezer..So I think you save money for doing that.. Personally, I only spend money when there's things I need and I make a list,,spend my money based on that list. But if I enter the same situation like you or there's discount or interesting offer, I think I will take it and buy it

i don't like spending money especially on food. I'm very concerned about my weight and having to buy food and regret eating it....sad. Food prices seem to be going higher and higher in my area. Though finding sales is good, I rather not spend the money at all.

yes I do like to spend money, specially if I have it. LOLz. Before I used to spend as I like, buying whatever strikes my fancy whenever I'm at the mall, but now as I have children and bills to pay (yaiks) I have learned to second guess my buying and I do try to budget. Although I splurge at times most especially when I know there is money to spare, but generally I watch what I buy now. Lest we miss out on paying our bills. LOLz

Yes it' happy to buy good things with less money . When i was a young lady i didn't bargain at all when i went to the vegetable market. i changed after i got married. Now when i go shopping it's not easy for me to spend any unnecessary money. i only buy the things i want and will try my best to have a bargain.

I like to shop a lot and I am continuously looking for best deals and bargains for the stuff that I require. I like to save as much money as I can by getting discounts on items that I purchase so that I can utilize the money that I saved to buy even more stuff. Serves two purposes isn't it.

No, if I could, I'd rather avoid it. I hate spending money. Too bad bills have to be paid and food has to be bought, otherwise I could be rolling in the dough! LOL

I like to spend money but I think carefully before doing that. Money is not easy to get,so I don't really have money just to throw it like that. I usually depends on my condition. If I have extra money then I would enjoy spend it.

Everybody has days where you just want to spend your money on not so important things just so to make yourself happy or something. But most of the time people would be very vigilant on what things you want to buy. I myself can be very vigilant especially nowadays when things are expensive but at times I buy expensive stuff because I would benefit on it buying the nicer things like with regards to shoes/sandals instead of cheap ones. It actually depends on the person and the item.

for me spending for nothing is a bad habit now.. since our country or world is experiencing a global crisis its very hard to spend money for not so important matter. you know what before at my younger age, i love to spend money buying things like, dress, perfume, sandals, shoes slippers, and kikay kit. and now that i am a mother and a wife now, i keep on looking for something that is not expenssive. i think of buying for myself is not that pratical, the practical thing for me now is buying something for my son only. i only think for my husband and for my son than i think of myself. spend your money wisely.

i seldom go to the market.only when i indeed need to buy sth, and i'll also take a list with me. but the fact is that i always buy more things than taht listed on the list. and certainly spend more money than budget. a little lucky, i dont go out often.

When you have an opportunity like that, you go for it. The vendors obviously wanted to quit their merchandise as quickly as possible, and you happened to be in the right place at the right time. Good luck to you sarojInc, and have a great day. If it rains again, head for the market. Lol.

When I buy something that is nice and the price is reasonable, I would feel very happy to make a good deal and tell myself manage the budget good for the day! ;-)

Can I say I like to spend money when I am capable to do so? I mean I like to go shopping but I don't have extra money to do so recently so I cannot spend money on that but I do like to go buy this and that.
