But I did receive an inheritance a couple yrs & invested in a geodesic grow dome. This year I built a run & coop and got 25 chickens. I don't save any money (except in the very short term to cover expenses I know I'll have in the near future) because interests rates are so low & the dollar continues to lose its value. Once I spent the money for the grow dome & chickens and had the food issue covered, I started spending on things that enhance my enjoyment of life like musical equipment. I invested over 10 yrs ago in building an off-grid energy efficient home (with no mortgage) so I feel like I've been more ahead of the game than most for quite a while. AND political activism for sure. I'm now on the executive board of my property owner's association which dictates a lot of what happens in my small, rural town...as well as being a member of the central committee of my local GOP.
