That assumes a person who always makes logical financial decisions. I know that in the past I have been terrible at setting money aside or saving and end up spending it bit by bit on shit I don't need. These days video games are actually the shit I don't need that my money gets frittered away on, so nothing much has changed for me, just the scale of my spending.
