I remember going to the flea market one time and I found something (don't remember what) I wanted to buy. It was five dollars. I bargained with the guy to give it to me for $4, then I paid him with a five dollar bill. :lol
I'm definitely frugal, but every now and then I'll go on a spending spree. I tend not to spend much on myself and won't spend much if I go out by myself, but if I'm with a group, I'll spend more.
Even though I have more money than most people my age, I'm very concerned about saving for the future. Between company stock and 401(k), I take $100 a week out of my paycheck. I look at it this way: I'm getting free money by investing in this. The company matches my 401(k) contributions up to 3% of my gross pay. As for the stock, I get a 10% discount when I buy it through the company (UPS), so as long as the stock price stays the same or goes higher, I am making at least 10%. Granted, it could go down, but a solid company like UPS usually grows over the long term.
