    I have some money saved up which is currently being spent? It's how I'm getting through Uni.

    So I'm spending money I saved?

    I never spend any change. I keep it in a big glass container. Even if I need 50 cents, I will break a dollar, and put the other 50 cents in the container. I give a time limit, say, 2 months. At the end of 2 months, whatever is in there, can be spent on anything. You would be surprised how fast it adds up.

    I spend, but need to prioritize. That way I can buy something even more expensive, like a motorcycle.

    I try to save, but owning a house and a car, and now recent doctor bills....the money is still spent when I would rather save it.
    Then again, I have it for emergencies which I guess they would count.

    I've been much better at saving the last couple of years. It's about time. I used to blow a lot of money on clothes and whatnot. Now I spend the most on travel but that only happens sporadically when I get time off.

    [ETA: This showed up as a "new post" for me for some reason, but I see this thread is old]

    I save to spend also lol.

    Right now I'm saving up for a vacation, for a cruise lol....I'm going in November. I've got my ticket, my cabin is booked, just looking at excursions and spending money at this point. The upside....I have a cabin all to myself. The downside....I have a cabin all to myself. I'm gonna be one of the very few single people there. Meh. Oh well.

    I don't generally spend a lot of money on myself, I really don't. So this is gonna be kind of nice.

    I save, save, and save some more. About 30% of my check goes into various retirement/investment funds I have set up. My expenses are minimal and I rarely travel. Own two used vehicles I bought with cash.
