The last year has been hard on everyone, but it seems like a lot of us are feeling a wad of cash burning a hole in our wallets.

45% of people in a recent survey by OnePoll on behalf of Affirm said they plan to spend more money this year than the past two Summers combined!

Plus, nearly half of people say they've saved enough cash over the course of the pandemic to open their wallets "guilt-free" this Summer.

On the flip-side, 40% are worried they may spend irresponsibly. According to SWNS Digital, 72% say they're fine putting their Summer fun on a credit card and paying it off down the road.

By the way, the #1 thing people plan to spend money on is vacations. Other popular picks include:

Going out to eat
Clothing
Home upgrades
Hosting family and friends at home
