What? You work like a bee and live like a rat? All those saving wouldn't do you any good it you should hit by a truck tomorrow.
I don't go out for dinner every week, but when I go out... I go where I want, eat what I want and I do not even look at prices.
If I buy a bottle of something I buy a bootle of something good, but I don't need to buy more than one bottle every X months
I don't own a flip phone, it is just an iPhone 4S (it was my previous company phone and I bought to the company when they wanted to retire it). Its glass on the back side is broken, covered with tape, because I don't see the need to pay over 100$ for something that doesn't affect the functionality at all.
I have driven for years a tiny old car with rust getting out of the paints, but mechanically perfect until I had to sell it because I got a kid and needed space. It drove, it kept me warm, I never had an accident, its consume was low, its polution was low... I replaced it with a 2 years old used big enough car.
I buy good clothes of previous seasons (new but old), because they are less than 50% of original prices and... on the one side I don't give a crap about trends, and on the other side it doesn't even make any difference if clothes are from this year trend or not in my dress style (classic, elegant, discret)...

Is that to live like a rat? If you think so... I think it is just living without unnecessary money waste.

Let me just ask you something:

Could you buy a car tomorrow if you had an accident and your current one was irreparable? Could you replace your kitchen / calefaction system if it got broken from one day to another? Could you leave your children enough money to grow without serious necessities if you got hit by a truck tomorrow?

I do, and without the help of a bank.

Life is just a question of priorities I guess

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
