I want to get an opinion on my feelings towards spending money. For the past year or so, I have been reluctant to spend money, more so now that my work placement has ended as this means i know longer have an income.
I am richer than I have ever been, and because I live at home I don't have to pay rent etc. However, I still worry when I spend money as I think I am going to lose it all. I have spent £120 today on football tickets and DVDs, the football tickets are something I am glad I spent because it means I get to catchup with a mate who I haven't seen for a while.
What I am trying to ask is whether I am right to feel uptight when I spend money even though I know that I will still have a lot in the bank, despite me wanting to go travelling next summer, and the possibility of having to pay a £3k masters degree?
Thanks for your time.

Does it really matter?

It's not a bad thing. I save up quite significantly and then buy higher end stuff (within reason) which I want. I'd rather buy a few decent branded items than a lot of Primark type stuff. But don't become too tight: you can't tell your grandchildren about how much money you managed to save, but you can tell them about the experience's you've had.
