Yeah. For me it was really figuring out the value I was getting for some of the things I was/am buying. I got rid of a lot of spend that wasn't really making me happier, but didn't cut things like travel, which I quite like.

So I'm honestly no less happy than I was when I was spending more like 80% of my pay. Just got a bit smarter with optimizing my spend.

I finally moved over an old 401k to my current carrier (Fidelity), everything except my Lending Club is now in one place. Time to buy another $100k worth of FZROX.

This sounds almost like Hermione Granger's "If they see us, we might be killed, or worse expelled."
