What Type of Spender Are You?
I'm an Emotional Spender

You spend on yourself for those feel-good vibes, and your emotions go hand-in-hand with your bank account. Your happiness comes first and the money will (hopefully) follow. If your savings is feeling a little tight, find ways to spend less while still having fun (like going out for more casual dining experiences vs. the lobster dinner, or hosting a smaller scale party instead of inviting the entire building). It’s all about the give and take.
I'm an Experience Spender

You’re down to spend money but your priority is to live life to the fullest. You prefer to spend your money on making memories and having fun. When you find your savings a tad crunched, prioritize which experiences you want to spend on now (hello summer concerts), then save up for what you can do later (maybe next year to the squad Caribbean cruise).
I'm a Non-Spender

You’re frugal and you sleep dang well at night. Whether you have a limited income or are focused on larger goals, you don’t see a need to spend money unnecessarily. There are cheap ways to do things and just as much fun to be had doing them. Just remember it’s OK to treat yourself from time to time. #YOLO
I'm a Rational Spender

They call it a ‘budget’ for a reason. You believe there is a way to save and still have fun! Everything in moderation is your motto. You’re the Goldilocks of personal finance.
