Sad, Stupid or Genius – You Be the Judge
Another story of extreme frugality came across my feed reader. I don’t know whether to laugh, admire, or pity these people.
It’s bad enough that they paid $150,000 for not much more than a closet. They also have to pay a $700 monthly maintenance fee. Exactly what is being maintained for $700?
Oh, and they have two cats to help stink up the place.
So where do they cook? They don’t. They have no food.
Where do they keep their clothes? In “kitchen” cabinets and at the dry cleaners.
They say living like this allows them to do other things, like eat out and go on vacations.
Excuse me, but they have no choice but to eat out, so that explanation doesn’t impress me.
If I lived in that place, just walking into the hallway would be a vacation.
I’m all for downsizing and frugal living, but they would be better off in a luxury RV parked near public transportation. The home would be larger and provide built-in mobility, for the same money.
This couple has lived there for three months. I want to read a follow-up story a year from now. I’m thinking these guys are angling toward a reality show or book deal.
