    Don't worry... stuff comes with time. When I was in college $100 was a lot of money. Now I spend that much at the grocery store and I don't give it a second thought. The keys are (1) having an income and (2) having your reoccurring expenses being less than that income.

    Money Earned > Money Spent = Money Saved

    Money Saved = money to spend on frivolous things.

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    Some guys go right from school into marriage and having children, and that can eliminate discretionary funds for years.

    I wasn't going to "go there." But getting a career, a few promotions with no wife or kids = money for whatever. One of my friends is buying a $70,000 car. He has no pinball machines though. I sold my extra cars to start a new hobby - pinball.

    We're all old and have jobs.

    Well said. I don't have enough time to play with all my toys anymore.
