The “War on Cheap Living”

This morning we come across an old problem which is cropping up again.

Call it a move by the PowersThatBe, or call it whatever else.  But the facts are that more stumbling blocks to “living on the cheap” are cropping up, again.

First, however, a look at a few headlines and how our Peoplenomics Oscillator has been better at calling the rally of this week than even my favorite human (me, lol).

The “War on Cheap Living” — 8 Comments

  1. . . .the claim that Hillary is innately dishonest is simply accepted as a given. It is an accusation and conviction so ingrained in the conversation about her that any attempt to even question it is often met with shock. And yet here’s the thing: it’s not actually true. Politifact, the Pulitzer prize-winning fact-checking project, determined for example that Hillary was actually the most truthful candidate (of either Party) in the 2016 election season. And in general Politifact has determined that Hillary is more honest than most (but not all) politicians they have tracked over the years. . . .

    . . .I’m not a favorite in Hillaryland. That makes what I want to say next surprising. Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.” . . .

  2. so…you are so comfortable that you live in a manner that is far less than you can afford…your money is like stag tickets…live well…eat well…drink well and stop worrying about a future that you aren’t in any way

  3. Have been living 27′ trailer for 5 years. Bought half acre put up car port and metal on sides with trailer inside Here taxes on car port only apply if 4 sides are metal so cheap tax. Am planing to do same south for winter only needing to do the drive. The land has power water septic

  4. We lived in an RV (in a park & on our property) while building our log home. It is do-able. We didn’t pursue this type of life based on “How dependent do you want to be on others?” Water, electric, etc in a RV park? We sold it all and moved to a place with a river & a creek for emergency water. Solar hot water and electric coming. More fruit then we can eat and veggies grow like crazy. Question seems to be “What do you NEED?” Figure it out and go for it based on Social Insecurity income. We live very well.

      • We live in the southern area of Costa Rica. Growing city is about 10 miles with all necessities. We have 1/2 acre and a small 2BR, 2 Bath refurbished house on a dead end road. Adding to porch (12×12). Total with my improvements will come in under $50,000. Good community of expats with inexpensive local help. No riots! Some petty crime.

  5. Hi George,

    FYI, the right hand side of your charts is not showing on both Firefox and Chrome browsers on my system(somewhat secure PC setup). It could be me, or something else. It’s just cut off past June 16 or so. Perhaps you use finer resolution on your screen, though my eyes don’t.

    Good update today. You might try a good class B RV, tiny class C, or small truck camper. The Rialto type is hard to pigeon-hole, but is small enough to use as a daily driver which makes it good for either long trips or just a run to Dallas where you want to stop and snooze for a couple of hours. I do thing the land barges are best driven somewhere and parked on your own land, rather than driven constantly. I despise slides, as they are just something else to break, and they’re heavy. Just my opinion.

    • Your browser has a zoom level. If you have the zoom set to 125% or 150% then the right side of the charts will not show.
      This is one of those settings that depends on your desktop resolution, too btw. When my browser is zoomed to 175% then the right side of charts goes off into gatesland…
