Despite spending money on unnecessary purchases, many agreed that they would rather “live a little” and have fun than save as much as possible.
‘What’s the point of grinding my soul at work if I can’t have a good meal cooked by someone else once in a while?’ one person wrote.
On the other side of the spectrum, others choose to save money where possible, such as making lunch for the work week or baking homemade bread.
Some also choose to have only one subscription service rather than several.
