I spend money to enhance my life too. But before spending, I prefer to carefully consider whether that effect is actually likely to be achieved. My bias is towards simplicity rather than consumption.

My personal record has proven that whenever I've been trying to decide, I've almost universally been (very) happy I made the decision to go, when it's been an experience for which I needed to travel. The money has been well spent every time. Looking back to think that if I missed that certain experience with friends or family, I would have made a mistake has always been the case. That said, when I choose not to go, at least I know what I'm balancing.

And I don't think you can get more simple than my existence, either.
