this may be too personal a subject, but i thought i'd ask. sometimes i feel like i put too much emphasis on having money. my girlfriend thinks i'm wayyy too tight with it. she feels that i don't enjoy it as much as i should. for the record, i have a decent savings. i could go several months without working. so i defintely feel like i'm ready for an emergency. no anxiety there. i'm not real materialistic. i don't feel like i need to have the latest and greatest toys. of course i do buy frivolous (sp?) stuff once in a while, but i definitely don't feel i'm an excessive shopper. i sometimes wonder why i worry so much about it. it's clear that i'm not foolhardy, so why can't i just relax? anyway, i was wondering what you all thought about money? how important is it to you? how do you feel about having it, saving it, or blowing it all. anyone live paycheck to paycheck? how do you feel about? do you worry about it? are you in serious debt? do you care?
