How Sad


This is a story I came across today and it saddened me terribly.I don’t hold with mortifying the flesh to amass a fortune.Money is meant to be used (spent).Just make sure that ‘one hundred percent of appreciated value is demanded for each coin spent.’Saving and investing are to increase ones ability to make more to spend more in the present and the future.A little delayed gratification is necessary but to punish oneself to hoard money is stupid.

Walter Samaszko Jr. was not a guy who wanted company. He covered the windows of his house in Carson City, Nev., with cardboard so the neighbors couldn’t see inside.

He was so good at keeping people away that when he died of heart failure at age 69 in June, nobody noticed until his house began to smell. Someone called the sheriff’s department.

It’s Impossible Not To Be A Millionaire


wealthymattersIn this post I will tell you the strange story of Curt Degerman.His story will show you how it is impossible not to become a millionaire.

Curt lived in the Swedish coastal town of Skellefteå.He was born in 1948.As a child he was very clever and had a bright future but dropped out of school in his late teens after a personal crisis.He never completed school, married, nor had a family of his own.He chose to live an alternative way of life and largely kept to himself.

Curt Degerman was called “Burk-Curt” (‘Tin-Can Curt’) by the residents of Skellefteå.For forty years Curt was a solitary figure seen cycling around the town in his blue anorak  and ragged trousers.He spent his days touring the recycling bins of the town on his old bicycle and rummaging through them, collecting bottles and cans .Curt transported the bottles and cans he found by stuffing them into bags tied between the handlebars of his bicycle.He sold the tins and bottles to shopkeepers and a recycling plant.
