If you find yourself contemplating about what are you saving for, you may be more free than you realize.

This is a great thing!

More saving = more opportunities and freedom

Even if you don't have kids/spouse to support, saving more gives much you more freedom than you realize.

It is a great feeling to know that working full time/working at all is optional.

I tried sleeping on a marble bed for a while, just couldn't get used to it.

Saving for . . . inflation.
Retired, but still adding to savings in case we need more money in the future.

I totally agree! I have been retired for almost ten years now, and I am very happy that I took early retirement. We are in good shape, but the future can get very nasty fast and long.

Very loosely, I'm saving for when I won't have an income. So retirement I guess.

I like to save while my wife likes to spend. It's a balancing act.
