Is It Ever Worthwhile to Line Up for Black Friday?

LINK: Is It Ever Worthwhile to Line Up for Black Friday?

IMHO It's only worthwhile if you are buying a big ticket item that is offered at a big discount. I wouldn't stand in line for a buck or two off the usual stuff.

Shipping Container As An Underground Shelter

Historic Shed Cottage

The TinyHouseBlog is a great inspiration for those that want to build their tiny dream home today! Just consider how much a home costs even in this downed economy. Imagine simply buying a little plot of land in a rural area and starting your own Tiny House Project, maybe at first it will only be a vacation or weekend home, but you may find that it could be a new lifestyle waiting for you, and you would have done it for a lot less than the cost of a traditional home.

Ditch Big Brother and Disappear Forever

Alot of good info here on how to get it started. However, you would really REALLY need to be determined to stay off any radar of any sort which, these days, is almost impossible. I think there is a "happy medium" that you should try to reach in this endeavor. A good start would be determining your need for credit cards, social networks, and governmental services. I like the ideas here but find them impractical in our modern age.

My focus would be to get rid of my credit cards, minimize my usage of financial institutions, because truthfully, the tiny bit of interest you gain in most banks these days is not worth your time; better to just keep your cash in a very good safe - oh, and get some guns and firearm education to protect yourself!

NEVER use any actual information on any social network! No phone numbers, photos, addresses, etc. Even your friends list can link you to people you may not even consider your friend. I like the section that is titled "Lie, Lie and Lie Some More", it makes sense.
