For me, it's time because while you can always recoup money, you can't get back time once it's gone.

I am careful with my money and will use a coupon whenever it's available. However, I'm willing to pay more for stuff that will provide convenience and save me time (e.g., booking hotels near the action while on trips so that I avoid wasting time driving around/getting stuck in traffic, having groceries delivered, etc.).

So for me, I'd rather pay for convenience than bells and whistles.

How about you?
Im stingy with time and money.

I'm stingier with time. "you're only young once" is something I lived by during my 20s, and I spent every penny I had back then to do the things I could only do as a young person. I have zero regrets.

Good for you!

If I could give advice to my younger self, it would be to not take life so seriously.

I turned out well -- with a good home and lovely wife -- but I played it a bit safe when I was younger. I was always very mature for my age, craving a serious relationship and trying to pin down a career when I was only 16 or 17. I think I took after my mom, who was the responsible, goody two shoes type.

I never took risks or did much traveling in my teens and early 20s.

Funny enough, I still play it safe as an adult (e.g., I have been in same job for 8 years).

At least I can say I can't recall doing anything wrong that I seriously regret, but I don't know if that means I've failed to live my life to the fullest.
