Why would you want to save money? Why not go all out with your spending today, you may not be here tomorrow?
You will be here tomorrow and for many many days after. Days in which you can feel more secure and glad that you are less in debt or have a comfortable stash put away for that something special. There is also a benefit to the environment in not overbuying.
And you should even feel better today if you realize that money you didn't spend couldn't purchase any real happiness anyway.
Ideas and tips on saving and why it is such a great lifestyle way.
ZenHabits puts it this way in Tip #20: Find happiness in life, not spending.

And yet, you buy that stuff, and you’re only happy for a day or two at most. Then you just need to buy more. It’s a never-ending cycle. Instead, learn to love life. Find joy in nature! In the people around you! In doing something you love! In exercise and meditation! There’s so much in life to make us happy, there’s no need to find it in spending.
