But saving so that the kids can inherit is maybe not the best strategy

I couldn't agree more.

I never understood why people would "go without" because they want to leave what they have to the kids. The kids will be fine and hopefully will have learned good saving/spending habits from their parents. But people need to save for and then enjoy retirement.

As one without kids, but very close with godsons, we know they'll one day benefit from what they inherit from us. But we never-never avoid doing for ourselves because we feel a need to leave money.

But that's just us. Your mileage may vary.
