Paying for a couple of luxuries for my daughter: voice lessons – just for the joy of it and a math tutor, even though she does well in math – I want to make sure she remains not only competent, but also confident in math.

After a lifetime of being of diminished means, just being able to pick up the check at a restaurant with family and friends is very satisfactory.

I love to try different restaurants. I’m not fussy so I try a variety of restaurants/foods. Also, I get great pleasure from my first cup of coffee in the morning and my afternoon nap (just a quick catnap that revives me for the rest of my day).

When I was trying to cut down our budget for a trial early retirement, the biggest thing I missed was food, specifically eating out often. Since I started working, I increased our food budget significantly and we are much happier for it.

Travel brings the greatest satisfaction as does helping my children in little ways as they need it and I appreciate being able to help fund grandkids 529 plans even if it is modest amounts.

Big spending: Travel with family. Our trips to Africa, Egypt, Thailand, Kerala (India), etc., were the best spending.

Small: Books, Tintin comics for my niece (so that I can reread them too:)), self-learning video/courses for myself, bright-color flowers every other week (surprisingly, they made a lot of difference during the lockdown)

I’m not a big spender. There’s very little that I need. I get the greatest happiness when I travel to Mexico and I take some of my Mexican friends on a vacation in their own country. I’ve been fortunate to see many parts of Mexico with my friends and I have never been happier than when I am there with them.
