There are no stores accepting bitcoin in my area, that's probably enough to not seriously consider using it offline, Also the confirmation time etc... would not make it practical for physical stores to use it.
yeah it becomes a major consideration because we cannot buy small items like toothpaste abroad country via online right. so the only way is convert to fiat

When it comes to budget friendly product I'd rather not to use bitcoin.

The $100 value of your bitcoin that you spend on toothpaste can be $200 or more in just a matter of days.

Note: Don't take seriously my example about $100 price of a single toothpaste.

No I do not spend a lot of bitcoins, I only do this sometimes for digital goods but that is everything.
The last month I even bought nothing with the bitcoin, I also want to hold them for a later moment, maybe the price is gonna rise also.

Yes there will be a time to spend your Bitcoins. But now is not the right time to spend it, because the value is not even that high.
We all hope that the value will rise and that the most people will have some profit, so they have later more money and that will be so good.

Well Im different. Im getting out when I sees a nice profit. If I will wait for that "skyrocket" price my quantity of coins today are useless. I can make more coins if Im going to take it out for a trade while waiting for that "skyrocket" price.

No I do not spend them actively if I'm honest most of the times I'm only spending them on digital goods, if I'm doing that.
I'm also waiting on the halving that is coming this year.

Prefer to hold onto the bitcoin I do have for eventually building a nest egg if the future allows bitcoin to prosper.

When I was starting to use bitcoin I use it a lot but now that I realize bitcoin might increase it's value. I'm storing it in my wallet hoping to have more value in the future when I'm going to withdraw it

If anything bitcoin should be spared for higher value ticket items.

Well this is how I do it, and it sounds like you do the same. Yeah, buying toothpaste should be considered using cash.. esp anything under $50 value.

Unless you dont have cash then thats different.

Spending your bitcoins actively can be good, but I'm not doing this because I'm long investing my bitcoins, the future if the bitcoin is bright in my opinion.
So its simple if you want to make a lot of profit right, do not spend any money, its the same as if you want to save money at your bank.

Nothing, if it will not increase nor decrease then it is still fine for me since it will be the same as storing my money and get it whenever I need it. But if it will decrease then probably it will be a loss for me, but the chance that btc will decrease it's price to a very low value is so little. So I take the luck to store it for now.

My bitcoins move around frequently but I always get the same or more back. Usually doing business with other peeps, or giving gambling a try it's usually active.

Usually i spend my bitcoins to pay some bills or buy some services online, but nowadays i try to hold some bitcoins in my wallet, because it's expected that the Bitcoin's price will increase after the next halving.

if your bill very low arround uder $50 i think better for you to still spend your bitcoin, you must pay your bill using bitcoin, im use it too. for me use bitcoin is more simple than bank.

Its not that smart now to spend it I think. Or you must be in emergency or something. The value is not that high.
It is better if you wait longer if the value is higher, than you can spend it much more.

It will always depend on the situation. If it is needed then use it. It is yours, you are the one who controls it. Regrets will always be at the end. But for workers here who keeps it that is one hell of a patience you got there. Thumbs up!.

Around this time it is not good to spend your Bitcoins. Because the value is not that high so you wont get much money for it.
It will be much better if you wait a little longer when the value has rise. Than you can have some more money later.
