    Somebody wise once asked me, "What is money, if not spent?"
    And this is why I've been spending whatever I have 'till this day. Not a single cent saved. I can't say I'm proud of this, and I know many of you would say that that regret is imminent, that my actions would bite me in my rear soon. But know that when I say that I have enjoyed every money I spent, I am telling the truth.

    Neither - just prudent. And it has treated me well. We live comfortably, but far from outlandish, and we have security (as much as money can provide).

    I love, love, LOVE my freedom.  Having debt would severely curtail anyone's freedom.  That's a stress I couldn't tolerate.

    Freedom and the possibility of spontaneity (i.e. travel, nights out, concerts, extravagant gifts for loved ones) means more to me, MUCH more, than having some possession.

    When I really want something, I buy it, but I'd guess I'd say I lean more to being a miser.

    Although I have several cars, one huge house and several rentals, all the goodies I want, I still have NO debt.  If I can't afford to buy it outright, I don't want it.  And, I am a teacher by trade, so earned it all myself, with realistic financial expectations.
