  1. Steve, I enjoyed reading your post quite a bit. I found myself agreeing with each one of your points, especially the one about spending on experiences rather than things. When I reflected today, I have fond memories of my experiences, not of some expensive item I bought 5 years ago.

    1. Thanks George, appreciate you taking the time to write. It’s true, experiences trump things in almost every way. They are what we remember the most. They are what bring a smile to our face when we reflect. 🙂

  2. Good post Steve. Sometimes I think people get the wrong idea of FIRE. They think a lot of us are just rubbing our hands together, hoarding all our money, being stingy and not having fun. I like that you point out the different types of people in the world and in FIRE. We fall in the middle too. We have figured out our enough and I don’t think it’s hard in a first world country.

  3. Good post Steve! I got out of my comfort zone recently by calling my ISP and asking them for a discount. I’ll need to confirm with my next bill, but I think I managed to cut my internet bill in half (basically asking them to keep their promotional offer running for one more year) just by asking nicely.

    That was tough for me because I really hate to bargain.
