Remember……..two quotes by which I live my life:

“It has nothing to do with how much you make, it's how much you save.”

“Invest until it hurts.”


Ooh, I like the first one, but as a person who often has trouble taking time to smell the roses, I'm going to pretend I didn't hear the second one.

I need to remember that there's a point where you just have to live your life. Yes, save for tomorrow, but remember that tomorrow is not guaranteed, so don't put off ALL of life's enjoyment until then.

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