I've wondered about how workable it would be to have a Thrift Thread e-thrift competition on this kind of basis. Something like: we start with an agreed amount like $10 or local equivalent and over an agreed time (3 months, a year?) have to spin it into as much as possible, posting pics of the e-thrifts. Might be too complicated, and I'm not the man to organise such things, but at least I've put it out there.
For English thrifters, the concept is based on a classic episode of Lovejoy, though that involved antiques obviously. It's early and I'm on the internet talking about Lovejoy. This is weird.
I'm down. or better yet. pool funds together for this years "Thtifties" winner. side note, we should name it. and have a plastic statue made in china. we could call it "The Dudleys".
if no one has any objections,we should have a series of awards. i"d like to run it. and will set up some categories. so the best of the thread can haz a statue to prove their thrift badassery.
Most awesome mode of transport award?
Edit: while on the topic, id like some info on importing a car from the UK to Japan.(Thrifted) if the UK regulars can help? this might be a long term project.
