You and Linda and I share the same ideas; if we "get by" using older
stuff or technology just a bit we have the money for things that are
really important (like, scuba diving!).

A really good little book I read several years ago helped me figure out
my financial priorities. It's called Your Money or Your Life by Joe
Dominguez and Vicki Robin, and it describes how so many of us are in the
trap of working FOR money, rather than money working for US. It helps
you analyze your relationship to money and what your spending habits
are, and what your priorities in life are.
