Yes, I would. Even if I might die soon, I still want nice comfortable things in my home!

My Nana is 89 and replaces her furniture every other year she's not well off, just on pension. But I don't care what she buys at this point, so long as she's happy

If I was 80 and well off, I would spend my money on whatever the *%# I wanted.

 Don’t you want to be comfortable or have visitors?

Yeah ok admin. You’ve deleted two of my comments now yet leave the nasty troll ones. So you’re encouraging bullying. Do you feel proud? I’ll sit and wait for this to be deleted now.

May be they don't want to have visitors over...

 I think they're deleting whole threads or something if it's getting nasty.

My nan was like this and she would be in her 80s now if she was still alive. Mostly is was about saving money and not wanting to be wasteful. She got to a point where she no longer viewed the money as hers and it was difficult to get her to spend anything that would make her own life easier or more comfortable.

 It’s usually family members that make older people feel that way

Their backs probably hurt because they are 80 years old and their bodies are getting worn! I'm pretty sure every 80 year old I meet has bad back

 This is why you should have comfortable lounge
