Im a Saver! I have a weekly lunch budget of $5, which requires that i bring lunch daily! That saves alot of money!!! A Great savings plan is the 52 weeks savings plan. Week 1= Save $1; Week 2=Save $2; Week 3=Save $3; etc Week 52 = $52..by week 52, you will have a NICE savings. Tip: Try not to miss a week, because doubling up is difficult if you get behind.
Tip: Start with Week 52 and work your way backwards. During the holiday season, you will only put away smaller amounts! Happuy $aving!!

I am a spender not by choice. It is called bills and living expenses. A vacation maybe about every 8 years or so because that is a luxury.

Im a saver when I can. I spend on things that matter not spend just to be spending.

I like to take vacations, but they can be expensive sometimes. So, I save a little of what I need and am patient until I feel I can really afford it. The same is true for most of my expenditures. I can't afford to shop for clothes frequently (though my sister does, and seems to find really good sales by doing so), and try to keep my credit card balances manageable. In order to afford nice things, I have to save for them; but then I spend what I have saved on what I feel I need to buy.

I'm BOTH, I work hard (full and part-time). Major obligations are paid on time. I've saved for a 'rainiy' day but I also can't resist a GREAT sale. My favorites words are FREE, CLEARANCE, SALE
