That's exactly what my first though was. He had 1.3 million in his checking account...checking.

Of course it's not, but it sounds like Chris Cooley thing to do...DC area, millions in checking.

From The Washington Post: "Tight end Chris Cooley is being chided by teammates for depositing his recent $9 million signing bonus check at a drive-through lane of a Leesburg bank. Cooley said the transaction did not surprise the teller. "She just took a little bit longer to come back out," he said.

These are my pics from last night. Keeping for me or destined for ebay.

Shirts for me, Lacoste and Cricketeer. The Cricketeer is made in Myanmar. I thought that was a closed country. Maybe I should feel guilty that it was made with slave labour? uhoh.gif


I just had to save this one. Thankfully it fits me. From the heavy wool, the cut and the construction, I think this is early 1950s. It has a few pin point moth holes and is bit threadbear at the back of the armpits (?), but it's still a cool piece that I can wear.
Does anyone recognize the maker? Or is it from just one of those many hundreds of smalltime regional makers/retailers that existed across the continent during the early to mid twentieth century?



Do you call this a barn coat? How do you wear it? You obviously can't wear it with denim.
PRL, flannel lining (strangely the lining is not purposely attached at the cuffs) and tons of rivets and buttons.

This is why he has $1.3MM sitting in the bank....he's probably investing that extra couple grand. My wife reports directly to the CEO at the financial institution she works works for (she's Director of Compliance)....and he wears Brooks Brothers suits and LL Bean on the w/e. The guy could afford a lot more.

Of course if he thrifted (or at least bought stuff from Spoo, et. al.), he could rock his Kiton and reserve the $1.3m simultaneously.

 Dang, I was wondering where I'd lost my Canali...

 

 

 Seriously, though. I've decided that if I ever win some ridiculous amount of money in the lottery, my "job" will be searching for loot in thrift stores and posting whatever I don't want to keep for crazy low BIN prices... And posting the links in this thread. So, if you ever see that here, you know what happened.

Who's an accountant here??

 

Am I the only one who thinks this is stupid? FDIC only insures up to $250,000 (someone correct me if I'm wrong). If you have that much money you should know (or have someone who knows) the best way to protect your money. Earning it is only half the battle.

Most savings accounts now have secondary FDIC insurance for balances above 250k.

post #61419 of 115969
FDIC insurance isn't the issue. It's the keeping of that money in such a stupidly low interest vehicle that's silly. Put 800k of that in some CD with short terms or low penalties and you can still earn way way more (before even considering anything like a mutual fund with, god forbid, risk).

Definitely put a good chunk of it (I'd probably keep $200k in the checking account if I knew I wanted to spend it regularly) into CDs or in a money market account, or have your damned financial advisor advise you, for Pete's sake!

Which is exactly why I think it is plausible that this is a receipt from some sports or entertainment celebrity. Those folks often get a ton of money all at once and don't get very good advice on how to manage it.

Totally forgot MMFs, that's another great option (assuming this guy is floating so much in checking because he wants regular access).

FDIC insures up to 250k per signer on the account, up to total of 1mil in most cases (4 signers).

Interesting theory but there's no way these jackets were fitting Chris Cooley. rotflmao.gif

If he had the time.

He could be grinding night and day to make that money. And would buy retail for the convience.
