nukenick said,You shouldn't save so much that you are a shut in and you shouldn't spend so much that you are up to your eyes in debt.There is a fine line between spending and saving and each person will have to find their own balance. Anyone who wants to FIRE must LBYM, but if you live so far below that you have trouble enjoying life, then you are in trouble.With that being said, there are many free things that a person can do. If you like music, many areas will offer various types of free concerts in parks. Or, you could pay $20 to $80 to see a concert. Your choice, but I have found free concerts to be just as enjoyable as seeing some high priced celebrity in a crowded coliseum.Walking is free as is reading. Libraries are a free way to get pretty much any book that you want to read. Many libraries also offer videos and other services.A major part of preparing for FIRE is finding that proper balance between living and saving. The more free things that a person can do and enjoy will just make it easier to save more money.
