Re: Factoring in the cost of inflation

Ohjodi makes a good point. As I recall, the Tightwad Gazette research indicated that in real money (amount of time worked to pay for something), nearly everything was cheaper than it was 50 years earlier. The exception was health care. Now that TG is 30 years old, my guess would be that the basic fa...

Re: So, IF you were going to move~~~~~~~~~~

The only one thing that matters hugely to me is: close to family (which is why we're not likely to ever move) That one outweighs all the others, but some other things that I think are nice are these: low cost of living good health care a gardening spot a good library 4 distinct seasons (I actually w...
