Well,we all have some weakness to spend any amount of money on certain things.We can otherwise consider ourselves frugal.Some spend on dresses and some on eating.Some are fascinated to traveling and some for earning assets.I have this inclination towards electronic goods.So,what is your weakness to be extravagant?

I am extravagant at traveling because it is my top hobby. When I am poor I like in a frugal way for my everyday life but I buy a cheap flight. Then I take my tent with me and stay in a couple of backpacker hostels. When I have more money I go on a long haul trip. I always try to make sure I come home with a costume doll for my collection of dolls from around the world. I like days out during my everyday life and I am keen on weekends away. I have a vegan diet and eat a small amount of fancy and top quality foods. I like fresh fruit and vegetables, nut and seeds bars.

maximax!That is a nice hobby to be extravagant.You can mingle with new people,see new places,have new experiences,gone lost from this fast world for a few days,etc...In fact,you are extending your self by this trips.I have heard about people saving a lot for tours but I didn't believe it until now.

money saved is money earned.Yes,as you have learned to save,you will not miss money a lot to buy what you desire the most.Once started to save money,the money itself will see how to get multiply.Just respect money,that is,use it reasonably and meaningful and you will not make a wrong expense.Whatever you spend for,will surely bring you happiness.

Oh yes!I won't even think on spend money on most of the things and I am against accumulating lot of things in the cup board.My shelf will have just three of four set of dresses alone and I won't buy another one until I have to replace one as it was worn out.And I won't go for expensive hotels often.May be once in a month as a means of outing for the family.So,I am concerned about spending less thereby saving more.

For me I admit, I am extravagant when it comes to perfumes because they are my collections. Every salary day, I always buy one brand from the other. I know I cant use them all, but I feel satisfied having them in my sight. One more is my cellphone load, Its a need anyway.

Do you go for costly branded perfumes alone or just buy whatever in the name of a perfume?I hope,you will empty all those perfumes before throwing away or do you just have half the bottle collections?By the way,what flavor do you prefer the most?About the cellphone loads,yes,we need it without choice.

Hi srganesh! :) Well well well what can I say? I am most expensive when it comes to food :) I'm a college student yet I spend extravagantly on food! Since I have long breaks especially on Mondays, my tendency is to eat on fast foods just to kill time. :( I sincerely want to break this habit especially now that I'm about to graduate on March so that when I get my first job I'll be able to handle and manage my salary well. My allowance usually goes to food and despite not having to pay for transportation my mom scolds me for spending too much! :) Once, I even experienced not paying for a school project because I already spent it on food. Haha. Hope I can break this habit though :( Hahahahaha.. funny.. but sad ;,(

!My god!You spent the fee money on foods?Then I have to admit seriously that you are extravagant on foods.and I haven't heard about people eating to kill time?!.Okay,don't frown on me.As you realize,you have to try to stop this habit soon.It will not harm you at this young age but will trouble your health when you grow old.take care!

Four hour break!Then you can visit the library and spend a lot of time reading relevant to your subject and of course fiction stories.Even you can find some biographies that could motivate your views.Or even you can spend this time in some indoor or out door games which would make you mentally and physically strong.
