Housing is a RIGHT??? I just don’t know why some people think they should get a free ride when the rest of us work so hard to acquire everything.
Okay, I am shutting up now.

Subject: Budget101.com : Freegan – as seen on Oprah
I just watched an Oprah show I had previously recorded. It was about
the idea of Freeganism – people who choose to live outside of our
consumer culture, acquiring things they need through alternative
methods like dumpster diving.
I’m curious about other people’s reaction to the show, if you saw it. I
hadn’t heard the term Freegan before. They didn’t even mention
Freecycle during the show.
This website has more info. on the Freegan lifestyle:
They strike me as extremists, and it’s pretty depressing to read their
rationale for their lifestyle. However, I do think there is merit in
pursuing these ideals to a certain extent. To each their own.
Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage.
