A quick break from money management for a second. One thing I miss about being in a bigger city like Salt Lake, is the dirth of places to see a movie. I am not talking about "Die Hard 74" I mean the off-the beaten path movies.
For my B-Day the Ms. and I were going to see "There Will be Blood." Just us no kids, nearly 3 hours of quite time! And as of yesterday it isn't playing anymore...to make room for "Meet the Spartans"...The movie that is up for best picture got bumped by next years "Razzie" winner.
We have been so good about not spending money, that we have curtailed our movie going, which is a favorite thing for me to do. Before we would go to most new releases even before most of our friends.
In a way this does tie into personal finance a bit. By being responsible with money sometimes we can be/feel a bit more isolated from others who do spend. Whether that is them talking about their fabulous vacation, new clothes, car etc. I truly am not a jealous sort of person, and I don't wish that I was doing anything else, but what we are doing right now. But it is interesting how much of what we talk about togehter socially ties to spending.
How about you? Have you ever felt cut off because you were being responsible?
