There is nothing inherently good about saving. It is a very powerful tool that can certainly be leveraged to improve your life vastly, but if you work your whole life pinching pennies and saving millions, what have you gained?

So is the money you're saving now being saved with a purpose (buying a house, retirement, travel, helping family, etc, etc) and does that purpose bring you more joy than spending it today would? If the answer to both questions is "yes", you're doing well. If not, you probably need to re-examine your goals.
