This thesis contains four studies in applied microeconomics. The first chapter studies the question of how risk and religiosity are related. The second chapter is a field experiment with a gym, with a policy intervention to help people go more often to the gym. The third chapter examines how the timing of mortgage and rent payments affects the timing of other consumption expenditures of households. The last chapter studies how employees in The Netherlands save out of different salary components.
