To the rich people of blind, when you first became somewhat rich/crossed the middle class boundary, what were the first few lifestyle changes you made ?
Lets say your total annual becomes 500k+, or 1m+, or even more, and you already have a house, car, 401k, and some stock investments covered, where did you start spending your money to improve your living ?
Coming from a very poor background, I still think about wasteful spending and live somewhat frugal life. After purchasing a house, a good enough car, and a good investment and retirement portfolio and child college plans, what are some focus area on spending ?
I do not like to spend on things that are only for showing off or status symbols. Designer clothes or luxury cars or type of luxury things that do not have any real benefit/features but expensive just for the sake of belonging to rich people club, those do not impress me at all. However i am looking for things that could improve my life, health or family or provide better convenience or entertainment. Partying or drinking is not my interest either.
So far I have tried spending in good quality food, grocery, hobbies, gadgets and electronics, helping out poor family members/relatives, donating to charities etc.
What has been your transition like ?
Get some life, do stupid human shit, like 🍹 or buy Gucci t shirt. That’s what humans do. Animals don’t do this. The rich don’t obsess about tomorrow, they live today.
