QuestionSo are you generally still as frugal as you were in your 9-to-5 days?

AnswerOnly recently. I've enjoyed myself over the years and had a lovely lifestyle, and now in the last couple of years, I've gotten much more frugal in terms of saving money for retirement. I don't need more things. I try not to spend money if I can help it.
