Wise words.Its really about investing in what you enjoy. No need to buy a 1k tool to use 1 time if a $50 one will work. Its okay to buy something cheap for 1 use. Its the stuff you use 90% of the time buy quality. Also realize if you don't love something get rid of it and get what you really want. Rarely will settling for less than what you want make you happy. I bought a new truck once had a fortune in it. I didn't like it. I cut my losses after 3 months and went back to what I liked. Life is too short to be unhappy.
Also certain things you should enjoy. If you drink, drink the good stuff. Smoke? Smoke the good stuff. Eat a steak eat the best you can afford. The pleasures in life should be a pleasure not just okay.
If only one thing I would say get a quality foam bed. Sucks to drop a couple K on a new bed. But you would glady drop a quater on the night stand each night if you knew you would wake up rested in the morning. It will pay for itself over the years.
If you don't know it yet. Get out of debt and save your money for things you want. Nothing tastes as sweet as buying something with cash and enjoying it then and not having the burden of paying it off later.
