I'm the exact opposite. I need to remind myself that life is too short and live it up while you can. But I'm not a materialistic person and that means I don't buy much for just looks.

Count me in the patient waiting for drop camp, self-reminding to stay patient.

50% or so in equities and eventually want to go up to 80%, to stay there indefinitely.

I am not sure if this was in response to my post, but if so, I think it is possible to save money and live it up - like using reward points for travel or joining seat filler groups for local events, if you live in an urban area. We have tickets for three plays and a rocket boat ride on the bay in the coming week, plus a free club event and festival on the calendar.

Yes I like all the free stuff. I will check them out. I live near a university or two.

I have a list of web sites I check, some daily and some weekly depending how often they change. One is a U.C. Berkeley event list. They have quite a bit open to the public for free or low cost. The seat filler lists are kind of wild there is so much stuff. We just dropped the most expensive membership for lack of time.
