Well so what if I have to eat grass after spending on flashy stuff that I like, the satisfaction is good enough and I pity the rest. I can get a D3, rest my mind rather than those who kept thinking about it whole day long. Think here save there, thinking it is wasteful and boom, accidents happens and you left without pampering yourself.
look, ideally, have good insurance, have enough money to last you 4 months for necessities (rent, food, health) in your bank, and then go and enjoy life.
Remember the savings you had as a teen slaving at a cafe and then putting it in your piggy bank?
8 years later all you got to show for it was $2400 and inflation has eaten away any earned value.
Better to have spent that $2k back then treating some hot chicks to good dates and getting laid.
Just putting value into perspective. Money isn't the be all end all.
