 Quoting: Grove Street


I make what I use as often as i can. I got so tired of things breaking and being so cheaply made . Your disposable world makes you rd economy go round ( for a while ) but its killing you all. Quality is a non existant term anymore. You all have sold your souls to the gods of convenience.
So I make quality items that my great great grandchildren will use .
This world needs to stop buying shit . Shit they DONT need , shit that falls apart. Yeah I will say it , ,, Chinese SHIT. They are destroying the earth with their pollution in manufacturing AND the disposal of the busted ass SHIT they make.

THe ONLY luxury that i willing buy is Vodka. I buy grey goose and its delicious and a bottle will last me a little over a week. 40 bucks well spent.


My wife left me recently..and its great!!! I am actually able to save money now.

Rent...expensive, water electric gas...expensive...thats about it. Once a week, grocery bill is around 130. Not bad.

Its the woman that WANTS a bunch of bullshit. I never spend money on junk, i have everything i need. Save save save!!! I wont have some pention when i retire, so i gotta save up every penny i can now for a better tomorrow...

Works opposite for me. I won’t peruse amazon, only search for specific items vs a department store/mall where I’ll always be tempted by items I don’t intend to purchase.

Re: what have you bought recently that you actually really needed.
Yesterday I bought an Omega Juicer. I have 3 other juicers, of
various design and function. Still, this had just been listed on
Craigslist for $25. Excellent condition, little to no use. Boxed with
most parts in their original bags.

I’m juicing everyday, so appreciate finding a bargain juicer.
