improvident

1. neglecting to provide for future needs; thriftless
2. Rash; incautious.

Besides, if your father saved money, and the others were improvident, he deserved to make a fortune.

Some of them retained a little of the thrift and forethought of the civilized man, and became wealthy among their improvident neighbors; their wealth being chiefly displayed in large bands of horses, which covered the prairies in the vicinity of their abodes.

They had a large family, and they were very improvident and cheerful.
Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.

Sounds like the Cratchets.

An improvident, profligate wastrel. I like this phrase.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
