Will You be spending more?

Hi

The end of lockdown this weekend.

Will you will be spending more?

We will not, we have a takeaway once a week but will just go out for a meal once a week.

The Markets are opening up again, so will actually be spending less.

I been thinking these past months, not going out, restaurants, hairdressers ( women) clothes shopping we must have saved a fortune... even though there seems to be daily deliveries.

I doubt it, a little while ago I reduced the amount my superannuation pays me each fortnight because I was accumulating money that I could not spend and if I was not careful it would affect my state pension.

When you get to our age there is a limit to how much you want or need and how much you can spend especially now overseas travel is off the agenda for the foreseeable future.

I'll be spending more..specifically getting both bumpers on the car fixed (courtesy of my wife and daughter not being able to drive carefully!!), as well as replacing the wing mirror (courtesy of someone else not being able to judge distances, nor leaving their details!!)

My spending will not change and it will be as before .. bought if needed and considered if just desired.
As you said about age, there is a limit as to what needs are and that also goes for desires too.

With the exception of maggots, I like my river fishing.
