Could you imagine quitting money? Meaning, neither earning or accepting money, nor spending it? Taking only what is given or set out as waste? Using only items already in motion in the world?
Daniel Suelo did it. 12 years ago, he left his last $30 in a phone booth and walked away toward a life of freeganism.
And he's here in Salt Lake today - having hitchhiked from his cave home in Moab - to tell us about it.
Chris and I are going to go see him speak at the City Library at 3 p.m. After watching this video, I'm excited to see what else he has to say.
This concept of refusing this idea of money, capitalism, and generally, a life lived for material things..intrigues me to no end! I aim to be a meager consumer, but living without money? Now that's dedication.
