Ultimate LBYM.................
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)

This Thread is USELESS without pics.........:)

Re: Ultimate LBYM.................

Oh the horror-- nothing new? No restaurants or home-improvement supplies? No Wal-Marts or malls?!?

"They bartered or borrowed. Recycled. Re-gifted. Reused. Where? Thrift stores and swap meets, friends and Dumpsters, and the Internet, from Craigslist to the Freecycle Network, which includes 3,843 communities and 2.8 million members giving away stuff to one another."

Oh please. Thanks for a great article, FD, and three generations of the Nords family are going to have a good laugh over this one.

Re: Ultimate LBYM.................

My yuck factor was about to overload until I read this:

"10 friends vowed last year not to purchase a single new thing in 2006 -- except food, the bare necessities for health and safety (toilet paper, brake fluid) and, thankfully, underwear..."

Frugal, yes. Nucking futs, no.

Numbers is hard

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Re: Ultimate LBYM.................

I think it's great.... to each their own.

I want to push myself to be more creative in recycling/reusing... generally 'making due' with what I have.
