HK_Runner I am counting on being here later. I have enough toys but I also wanted to have one year's worth of living expenses in hand. I recently did that. That habit is now making me much more careful when I do spend money. Granted, I did just drop $2,000 on toys this past month. Now's it's back to austerity for a while...till it's time for my lift and tires (OME, control arms, gusset, truss, and who knows what else).

I'm lucky in one way though...I don't do much for looks. I'm past that stage. I only get stuff I am sure I need.

I used to save like crazy. Had an uncle who all ways told me you have to live for today every now and again, you never knew when it was your turn to go. Well he was killed at work climbing a power pole the week before he was going to move into the new house he and my aunt had built.

I still put up for the future, but I also dont have a problem anymore buying something I want if I can swing it.

Sadly I see a lot of people who dont do this. I have guys working for me who start out at 70k a year and live paycheck to paycheck. The future never even comes into there minds.

HK_Runner I'm trying to save instead. I'd like to retire someday and I already have other expensive hobbies...road biking and mountain biking. It's tough though- I like to live for today.

Joe Dirt Poverty won't stop it. I'll just start making highlift holders out of fencepost straps.

jp2611 What makes it worse for me is I said I liked my Jeep so much when I got it I wasn't going to change it at all.......I have now spent almost as much in mods (some done more than once) than I paid for the Jeep 9 years ago....nope not done yet...just not sure what is next.....

Applies to racing and buying guns too
