What Did The Money Personality Quiz Say About You?
So how did you do?
Are you a spender, hoarder, investor?
What did you learn about yourself and money? This money personality quiz is a wonderful place to start to see what types of patterns you’ve created around money and what might be some practical solutions to change your old ways and create a more healthy relationship with money moving forward.
With the exception of the money hoarder, most of us would be wise to start saving more money each month. Most American’s don’t have even $500 at their disposal if an unexpected emergency would arise.
They would be forced to resort to using credit cards or asking family or friends for a loan. Neither one of these ideas is great. So the best way to start protecting yourself is to start saving money.
How To Start Saving:

If you’re looking for an easy, ‘I don’t want to think about it’ way to save money, consider opening up a Digit Account.
With the Digit savings app, you link up your bank account to Digit and every few days Digit looks at your income and spending habits to see how much you could save. Digit then automatically moves money from your checking account to a Digit savings account.
Each transfer averages around $18, but it could be higher or lower depending on your individual situation. So many of my readers have started using Digit because it takes all the guesswork and planning out of saving.
Another terrific and easy way to save is by using Ebates when you shop online for the things you need. Here’s how it works:
Search for the store where you plan to shop, connect to the store through their link, and you’ll earn a percentage back on your purchase. Receive payment every three months by check or Paypal. With Ebates.com, in the last year I received over $200 back on purchases I planned on making. That’s money I can put directly into my emergency savings account and you can too!
If you’re heavy in the debt department and are trying to juggle paying off debt and creating an emergency fund, you can always opt to start a side business as a way to bring in extra income. When I started my blog two years ago it was a way for me to retire from the cleaning business. Little did I know that starting my blog and taking Elite Blog Academy, I would be making more blogging than I would ever make cleaning toilets! Maybe a side business turned full-time income-producing gig would be right for you?
The bottom line is this money personality quiz can give you a snapshot into your spending, saving and investing behavior and help you seek out new tools and resources so you can master your money once and for all.
