Gotta love it!

I don’t know if it’s just that Mississippi women are so strong, so smart, or just so plain hard-headed… but you’ve got to read this story of a woman whose husband shot her in the head, and she survived (very likely with little or no lasting effects)!

No, you do *not* “need” a TV

Posted in frugal, politics by Kathy on April 8, 2009

Someone on one of my cheapcycle or freecycle lists just posted a request for a TV or DVD player, stating that she “needed” them. Nope. Sorry. That does not qualify as a need. It’s a want, not a need. Learn the difference, people! Maybe if more people had properly separated wants from needs we would not be in the “credit crisis,” “mortgage meltdown,” “stimulus” nightmare. You need food, clothing, shelter, etc. TVs and DVDs are optional items which are luxuries. Argh!
