Enjoyed reading about this lad's journey into adulthood written at the start of the last recession. Good reminder of the rewards from living a simple life, though perhaps only someone with Scots lineage could have lived such a frugal life!
Author seems to assume that everyone with a car, house and job is a wage/salary slave - needs to realise that many enjoy their lives and jobs and would find his lifestyle abhorrent.
Good he recognised that he was never actually poor as he always had family and friends as a back up.
Would be interesting to read an updated version now that lending is more controlled and unemployment levels declining along with real incomes.
All good stuff, hopes there's a follow up.
