Luxury nowadays is less for one’s own enjoyment & pleasure and more for showing off. The neighbour is showing off his new shiny car, and now you want one in your garage too. It’s this endless cycle of expense where the only ones to gain are the capitalists. So if you want a comfortable saving for a luxurious retirement then its time to let go of the luxuries today. Want that duplex with slanting red roof later? Take the bus now instead of salivating over the new model of that car you already have. As you sow so shall you reap? Work to secure a great future instead of spending it all on instant gratification.
