Contentment not Happiness

Happiness isn't the right word. The word that is appropriate here is contentment.

Spending my money after careful consideration fills me up with warm fuzzies. Spending my money carelessly fills me up with regrets. I prefer the warm fuzzies...

I would add that being frugal makes me feel secure, in-control, proud and even virtuous. I guess I read too many Duck McScrooge comics as a kid...

Yup, the best things in life are free...............
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

I don't much care for frugality, at least by DW and myself. It's so, so, limiting. We seem to prefer binging. And forget that LBYM's BS, it's about Living exactly within our means.

If only we had more means...
It's about the music

Being happy / content means I have everything I want / need and that means I incur no expense for more.
