David Spilker, M.D., a retired emer- gency physician in Pebble Beach, Cali- fornia, drives a 41-year-old Mercedes he bought new in 1973. "Money made during internship was big money to me. My father was raised on a farm and instilled in us a good work ethic. I have never lived the 'rich' lifestyle," he says. Principle 5: Limit your fi xed expenses. Large mortgage payments, property taxes, student loan payments, vacation homes, expensive cell phone contracts, car payments and private school tuition are all diff cult to cut back on when money becomes tight, which it eventu- ally will for one reason or another. Vari- able expenses like vacations, one-time purchases, retirement savings, food and entertainment costs are far easier to decrease when income is low. Try to minimize the percentage of your income that is already spoken for each month. Frugality is a virtue for physicians and non-physicians alike. Those who learn practical money management skills as early as possible in their careers will benef t from lower stress, more freedom to live and practice as they choose and more happiness. ● James M.
