AARP’s April Bulletin served up stories of two FIer couples who live my perennial motto: “I buy my freedom with my frugality every day.” I don’t own stuff, stuff owns me, so it has to earn its way into my life. I do still get “possessed” – but only at the Thrift Store, and that supports a good cause. Now that I am moving, a quarter of my stuff is going back whence it came – supporting that same good cause one more time. It’s good local money – just keeps circulating, making people happy. Anyway, read about Sky and Jane and Helen and Phil and get inspired.
