There are a couple of options threads that are pretty active here
. I suggest reading them.
IMO, based both on some academic research, as well the same experience you have making money selling option writing options is more profitable than buying. I'd also say that generally speaking options on broad market ETFs (e.g. SPY) are especially overpriced. Therefore I'd be inclined to do the exact opposite of what they authors are suggesting. Either keep the cash and write puts, a strategy the Utrecht has profitably pursing for a long time, and me periodically. Or buy and hold ETFs, with occasionally writing covered calls, during times of high volatility.
