Budget To Broke 👀 Here Are Malta's 5 Types Of Student Spenders 🤨




Cha-Ching 🤑


We're all shopaholics in our own way, right?


We all have our own guilty pleasures, though let's be honest, when we look at our spending habits, there happens to be a slight trend, and if you don't think you have some type of spending stereotype we're here to give you a reality check 😅



#1 - The Clutter Shopper 🔮



Flying tiger is your favourite place, you go into malls with zero intent on exactly what to buy - yet you leave with gumball machines, whoopie cushions, lamps shaped like bananas, and anything else that's remotely useless.


Also, your room is just a pile of random items that you used once and will never use again 😬





#2 - The Shopaholic 🛍



Hello fellow shopaholics, you guys have it bad.


It's impossible for you to leave the house without splashing your cash on something new, whether it's video games, clothes, or shoes - you name it. The adrenaline rush of getting bags upon bags of stuff is addictive for you, plus it's a good work out 💪





#3 - The Deal Demon 😈



You love a good bargain, after browsing FreeHours pages to find the latest student deals, you move onto further methods, searching on all sorts of websites to find that one code.


Often you go to the mall with the intent to browse, but the minute that big red 'SALE' comes into sight you have to go in and you won't leave until you find something 💁‍♂️


These are also the people who when you compliment their clothing, love to point out "Oh this? it was only €5!" 👀





#4 - The Party Animal 🍻



After being extra careful with your spending for the past couple of months, and saving up allllll of your stipend - the weekend hits and you blow it all.


Cocktails, cabs, pizza, as you scream 'shots for everyone'. Next morning, you find a completely empty wallet, and it's back to saving until the next night out 🕺





#5 - The Avid Saver 💰



You're permanently anxious about spending money. Not only do your own purchase decisions worry you, but your friends' spending habits stress you out too 😤 You enjoy the idea of knowing you could pay a ransom, but only if it's completely necessary...


Also, if something breaks, you don't buy a new one, You reuse and fix, forever.





Save That Money 🙌

Whether your relationship with cash is good or bad, managing your spending is probably a good way to go...especially since as a student you probably aren't making much 😅
