I agree and have worked the simplicity law for years now. Problems arise with family members who truly enjoy “the finer things”, which I don’t think are fine, just a waste of money. I have no objection to their choices and love them dearly… but I often feel like the buzz kill at family events. And when everyone agrees that we must split the bill equally, I inwardly grown!
I know that frugality is considered boring and a drag to many.
