No, Money doesn't burn a hole in my pocket.
We haven't traveled, but our travel budget is not as high as many here.
Grocery expenses have increased, though, but not that much!
Anything not spent is left in the account.
Usually gift kids at Christmas, so they may get more this year.
Donate to charity through out the year, they may get a boost at the end of the year too.
You are no longer in a savings mode.
You are now in a slow spend down mode.

In the summer I splurged and bought a non-stop roundtrip ticket on United from Orlando to NJ/NYC for $70. Planes arrived 15 min early on both cities. I still look for great deals.

We have an account that steadily goes up every month as an emergency/travel fund. It's now at $80k because we haven't been able to book travel. Maybe I'll buy a new car.

I bought a new car with anticipation of going on a long road trip. We have also donated to local food bank, Red Cross and Salvation Army. Do not want to buy anything at the moment because we want to de-clutter our house. Or maybe just a good photo scanner later.
