Are you the lavish spender?
If you are on a strict budget and spend money when you know you shouldn't be spending. For example: If you are on a tight budget and you still manage to spend an X amount exceeding your limits.
I love shopping - it is my therapy and exercise, but for me it is more of a treasure hunt. The bigger the bargain, the happier I am. I never spend out of my budget.
I'm a lavish spender but within a planned budget.
For example when I went on vacation to Paris for a week and we stayed at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée. The room was $1100 U.S. dollars per night. We had the money in the bank to cover our expenses and did most of the tourist things. I do the same thing for holidays.
I guess you could say I (save money) in order to be a lavish spender! One old adage goes: "You can't take it with you!"
Credit card debt is the worst kind of debt. I like to pay it off in 30 days.
Devika.....Hello! Haven't talked with you in a while.....glad to see you are well & as active as ever on HP.
Well, what woman does not love to shop? THIS woman. LOL Obviously I shop when I have to because I am looking for something in particular, but I don't see "shopping" as recreation or entertainment, as so many women do. In other words, I refrain from temptation. I know better than to give myself a hundred reasons to buy a hundred things I do not need, never knew I wanted, or JUST COULDN'T RESIST! LOL
Self-control, Devika! I'm an expert (when it involves spending) However, I have never in my life resisted a piece of chocolate cream pie!
Frankly, I have to say that my sister and I had such a (subtle and/or subliminal) type of brainwashing in terms of "finances-budgets-money management"....it is literally ingrained into our brains! I truly feel on "auto-pilot" nearly robotic when it comes to constantly hovering over my financial affairs. Our mother (Bless her) did an incredible number on us in this area of Household responsibilities.
I will forever be grateful for this. As it turned out, I have forever been "on-a-budget!"
Great Question, Devika. Have a happy week-end!
I can classify myself as a lavish spender. I love to shop. However, I am lucky that my finances are not suffering from this. However, I am curbing my shopping as I have so many items. Also, I NEVER exceed my limits.

Are you the lavish spender?People spend money daily. How do you manage your spending? Do you have an X amount to spend daily or monthly? Do you spend money however you please?

Are you a spender or a saver?I was a spender, but am now a saver--was forced into that mode by the economy. It was just never in my nature to squirrel away money for a rainy day.
