Yes. Spending of liquid assets had no effect (except on our happy lives, anyway). Until I take my SS (at 70 during 2030), we are gonna look poor to the IRS. I've got familial longevity and have planned to age 99 for us both just in case. GGM, GM died at 101, DM is still very spry at 84 driving from Houston to KY every year- sometimes as many as 3 times. DH has taken better care of his body than his ancestors, so he is a "who knows?". My super conservative calcs. have me leaving $ on the table even with a (to us) high spend rate.

I suspect most in here did not get any stimulus money. Being a part of the peanut gallery works just fine for me, though. Sadly, our entire travel budget is just sitting around, waiting for Nov. when we will have our snowbird cat-sitter back. DM didn't make her summer trip this year, but she is coming for the holidays no matter what.

Rather go to bed without dinner than rise in debt. Slaves to debt is what describes the USA.
