There has to be a balance between uber-consumerism and being stingy and cheap. (Is there an -ism for that?)

My DW does her best to balance that out for me! :-)

But you are right, it is important to enjoy your life along the way to FIRE. Otherwise you will be that grumpy man/woman that nobody wants to spend time with when you have all of the time in the world.
