Guys, all of you, thank you. Im so appreciative of your support and if Ive inspired you to do the same. Without inspiration, youve got nothing.
And man, this article nearly brought me to tears. I dont even know what to say. When a life goal is achieved with something that you created yourself, there is really no greater feeling than that.
Last year, my wife and I visited the US. I had the goal of hitting the thrifts along the way and paying for the entire holiday. I am still selling off things I found last summer and ended up paying for about 90% of it. This year, I'm paying for the entire trip from my thrift account and my budget is considerably larger.
As anyone here knows, it's a lot of work to do this (if you're doing it right, that is), but it's great to see other people that have reached their goals. It helps me evaluate where I'm at, where I want to be, and put it all in perspective.
