Are You a Saver Or A Spender?

I am mostly a spender. I have always been a spender. It is only recently that I have thought much about saving. I guess I have been lazy and lackadaisical about saving some money for retirement but I have started doing it now. And frankly it is thanks to the Coronavirus and the lockdown that I actually did start doing so.

I didn’t think much of it until June came around. So we went into lockdown on March 21st and by the beginning of June, I noticed that I was making a bit more money from my blog and that combined with me working from home and not spending as much as I used to meant that I had saved my April & May month’s salary and had mostly only spent March’s salary. So June I did spend quite a bit as I wanted to buy a few things for me and for the home.

I also mostly only use my blog earnings to buy my collection of dvds and hence I spend my salary money on food, drinks, groceries, bills and the sort. I still have saved some money – a little bit more than 2 months salary. I need to find more ways of making money online so I can save even more.
