What Purpose Does Money Serve?

If money is a means to an end, whats your end?
Thanks to Forbes, I have been introduced to a fantastically practical and already popular blog Mr. Money Mustache. Funny name, yes, but don't let that fool you, this blog is serious about money - saving money. This blog is the ongoing story of one Colorado family (a couple and their child) who set out to retire at age 30 and how they saved enough money ($800,000) to do so. I want to talk a little about their particular situation and how they value money. It's fairly uncommon and frankly, a little extreme, but it has greatly affected me this week.
