Results

Mostly 1s: You’re a careful organizer. Your belongings aren’t your top priority, and you generally don’t buy something unless you absolutely need it, especially if you already own something similar and don’t have space. You don’t collect much, if anything at all.

Mostly 2s: You tend to shop unnecessarily, purchasing and keeping things you don’t need. You hate passing up bargains. Refine your habits with this simple tip: take pictures of items you want to buy, then leave. If the picture makes you want to buy those items a couple of days later, go ahead. Chances are good you won’t.

Mostly 3s: You aren’t organized and have a hard time trying to be because of all your things. Spending hard-earned money on things just because they’re affordable is a dangerous habit. Seek out a trustworthy accountability partner who can hold you responsible for your budget and organization.
