Quote from: Old_Arpad on November 22, 2018, 05:27:23 AMOriginally I started saving hard for other reasons than FIRE. I wanted to be less wasteful, less consumerist, have a more simplified life. I felt bogged down in "things" and felt tied. I started to just not buy, and leave the money in the bank. Then later there were layoffs at work and I saw some people so worried about what they were going to do. And I started to think whether I could get another job if I was laid off at 50. So I decided to save more just in case I did get laid off at 50 and couldn't get another job.
