Attitude Change

December 7th, 2013 at 08:27 am

It is interesting to observe how I have less of a desire to buy things as I get older. I get more of a kick finding ways not to spend money. I still enjoy life. There is just no need to constantly spend to fill up the empty spaces.
My change jar has a substantial amount of change. I am constantly looking to save whatever I can. The investments are doing fairly well. I have no major expenses left.
Just checking in to remind myself to keep at it!

    Yes, so true. Think of it as just a massive brainwashing effort by marketers to sell their products. If you can just see it for what it is, there can be no seduction.

    I am 'only 43'.. tell me that is young! and I feel the same way.. less need to buy to impress.. more intersted in saving and still having fun! in fact saving/investingn is fun!

    I feel it, too, even though I have always been very conservative about spending, even as a very young woman. There is a certain wistfulness about some material thinks, I admit, but those things do not really fit my life (or my house!), so though I might in some way wish I had them, common sense prevails.

    A friend of mine told me that after she had been retired. She said as she got older, she didn't so many things. I've noticed it myself. Maybe it is because I'm more satisfied with my life or maybe it is because I realize I already have more things than I need.

    I feel the same way, Paul.
