A New Story
If you want to have a fuller life, stop saving money to buy things. Things become obsolete, or they break.
Save your money for experiences. They last longer than an expiration date.
If you must have a thing, then buy something that will last longer than next year's model release.
This might sound cold, but if I'm going to read about how other people are suffering financially, I'd rather read about it on my older model smartphone, from Key West, or Giza Plateau, or the Parthenon, or Ayers Rock.
