Personally, I’ve been in this boat more times than I would like to admit. Definitely one of the weaker plans in investing for one’s financial future. Probably why video games are not an available option on your 401k.
A lot of people need to buy games as soon as they come out. Me, I can wait a little bit. That’s not saying that I don’t want to play those games as soon as they are available. That just means that I’ve mustered some level of patience over the past few decades to be able to wait. But only a little.
