Unclemick, you should be ashamed of yourself, telling them you were only 26. :

Re: How Can I Spend More Money?

70% of income and he doesnt make much? I feel his pain, but I think he should continue to spend as little as possible. He isnt missing anything and if he is...he can spend some of it on a mid life crisis later. Those early saving/compounding years are so important!

Pretty good impression for a 15-year-old from Missoula...

Re: How Can I Spend More Money?

Heh yeah, while it makes a good headline catching article, I don't believe it for a second.

If he said something like "I wish I could go out and have fun, but I can't stand spending my money", then I'd believe him (as I've known people who couldn't have fun with their money).

However, I don't see why someone would want to spend money for no purpose, especially at such a young age. Makes no sense, so I call BS on the article.
