A person is always best advised to have a savings for rainy days, unexpected events or retirement. However, squirreling everything away leaves a lackluster and miserly life and should that 'rainy day' be some sort of accident that leaves you bedridden, you'll regret not traveling and adventuring. I believe that everyone should find that happy medium between planning for the future and enjoying the present.
Yes, I think that money should be enjoyed for the present, but at least some portion of it should be conserved for future things. You never know what is going to happen in life and if you can afford a great adventure or things that make you happen, then you should absolutely enjoy it.
No, I think it is absolutely better for people to save for the future rather than be wasteful and spend everything they have for the here and now. People never know what is going to happen to them in the future, like a health crisis, and need to save money for such things.
If one spends all of their money now, then what happens when an emergency occurs? That person goes into debt. They now have less money to spend in general, and have to deal with the stress/annoyance of a loan payment. Why not save your money, and control your own destiny? Stop putting yourself in a position to accumulate debt? Beans and Rice today = Sushi and Steak tomorrow! - Concept of Interest
