Three years ago I decided that I should place deposits from my brain on the interweb once in a while.  1095 days have passed with random LifeInFIRE thoughts appearing a couple of times per month.

FIRE.072 Goodwill-Good Stuff, Goodness

This is an update to last year’s post. I went to Goodwill on Thursday, Jan 3rd, 2019 because I was passing by after the gym.  THE GOODWILL RACKS WERE PACKED!!!  I could not believe all of the items on the racks and shelves.  It was like hundreds of homes had cleaned out their over-consumption stuff …Read More
