    I have never cared that much for posessions, but I will pay crazy amounts of money for an experience. I would never ever EVER buy say.. a couch, over taking a trip. If it can be purchased, it can usually be replaced, so it doesnt have that high of value to me. Required items like food, I will bargain hunt like a mofo. I like 2nd hand stores for clothing. I am the kind of person that will take 80% of my paycheck and put it towards a cruise.. then live on mac n' cheese and cup o noodles for 8 days. I have rationalized paying my rent a week late so I could buy concert tickets for me and my closesy friends. There are only a few things that I will pay high price for, parfuum, certain foods, and gifts to friends or family. I can't stand being a cheapscate socially, and when I see other people do it I *cringe*. It is so unbecoming to me, I don't know why.

    This. I put all monthly expenses and bills (minus mortgage) on one CC which I pay off monthly. I get great cash rewards by using the card and that goes directly into an higher yield account. That's free money and it's like a little game I play, I get a ridiculous thrill from it too. I'm not a big spender, I do like shopping and I look for sales, use coupons, all that. ENFJ man has some crazy sale radar, he will research things to death so if I am considering a purchase I tell him and two days later I have a spreadsheet and three options. I love that part. We don't completely deny ourselves things but he has much worse buyers remorse than I do.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I enjoy some of the finer things in life. I really like spending money on my hair and fancy alcohols and good food. I was born a spender, but also really poor. So now I've achieved this nice happy medium of discipline and enjoyment. I know when I'm allowed to spend and I know when to stop, I don't usually go overboard. I have a decent handle on the bigger picture with my money. I can also be very very frugal and inventive when I'm in a pinch with money. Regarding stuff I'm keeping, (not food and stuff), I only try to buy things that I really REALLY like and that I will use, or stuff that I need.

    i enjoy being frugal and getting the most out of as little spent, i keep a squirrel fund, also like to plan for future endeavors.

    im not an impulsive spender because im not comfortable with what tomorrow might bring and i like being prepared, so i dont have to lean on anyone. i definitely feel less control when my finances are not in order. i like my bills payed ahead.
