My question for discussion is- when or at what age does one stop being stingy and start "living"?

I suspect that this is really a hard question. I think one problem many people have when they have spent their lives saving for the future is that they never learned how to live any other way. It is so engrained in them to save, save, save that they have real trouble changing their mode to spending even if they have plenty to spend.
