b. I would be financially stressed – yet again. My money is so tight that even
though I want to put aside a little extra savings, so far I haven’t been able
to do so.

to borrow from my retirement account to make ends meet.

Your Money Personality Type – Revealed!
Mostly As: Saver – You are a saver if you regularly set aside money, and make a point to
build a cash cushion for a rainy day.
Mostly Bs: Spender – You are a spender if you pretty much spend everything you earn
(and possibly more you earn); are living paycheck to paycheck; or often buys frivolous or
luxury items that you can’t afford.
Mostly Cs: Stasher – You are a stasher if you are an extreme form of a saver; you worry
excessively (or unnecessarily) about having money in the future, so you hoard it now,
often to the point where you do not enjoy your money, or the things money can buy.
Mostly Ds: Splurger – You are a splurger if you are an extreme version of a spender;
you may or may not spend everything you make, but you frequently succumb to impulse
purchases, buy large-ticket items, or buy spontaneously (and often later regret it).
Mostly Es: Goal-Setter – You are a goal-setter if you only like to spend your money on
items or activities that are budgeted, carefully calculated, and/or planned in advance.
Mostly Fs: Dreamer – You are a dreamer if you have a lot of big dreams for material
success, but no practical financial plans about how to reach your goals.
