Are You a Spender or Saver? Take the EveryDollar Quiz!
It’s quiz time!
Hopefully those words don’t bring on stressful, sweat-inducing memories of complicated word problems about a train leaving one station at 5 p.m. and another leaving a different station at 3 p.m. (but with three stops in between), so which reached your grandma first? Pencils down. Pass your papers up.
Don’t worry. It’s not that kind of quiz! It’s the fun kind. Really! Answer these 10 questions to see if you tend to be a saver or a spender. When you’re done, we’ll give you a little advice on each.
And remember: One isn’t better than the other. Both have their good and bad qualities. Just answer honestly so you can get a better look at how you usually deal with money.
Striking a Balance
Whichever side you lean toward, remember something: It’s important to find balance between the two. If you focus solely on spending, you could end up with lots of debt. If the only thing you do is save, you don’t get to enjoy the things money can do for you such as giving, going on a nice vacations, or just an occasional night out.
Find what works for you, and be wise with it. The best people (and budgets) are balanced ones!
