    To quote a phrase used by Rosieben - ie her description of this thread of mine.

    Well - Rosie - I've been poodling off recently to another blog I've found for a "visit" sometimes. Not a moneysaver one - more in the "beautiful" category. But I rather like it - and some others might:

    (the one question I am curious to know answer to: when she says Swampy is her partner - I presume we mean "the" Swampy?)

    Aril - this is one you will like as well.

    Thanks for that link Aril. I was wondering how it would be possible here in the UK, bearing in mind things like council tax, but I notice that he has a link to a guy over here who's been living money free. I'll be having a look at both sites.

    Some Local Authorities give free internet access ;) But I suppose it's not really "free"; I've paid Council Tax to fund it.

  • In most counties free internet is possible.....libraries offer it free, and also do taster courses in internet and family tree searches :money: All you need is a library card, which is also free.

    He writes his blog for free at the library. My only comment [not a criticism just an observation] is his lifestyle is in part dependent on the rest of society buying and throwing away.
