One of my favorite new websites is called Mint.com. Basically it is a financial website that allows you to manage your money, but it also has this amazing blog. I have now vowed to never rent if can avoid it. I have been there, done that and found it that the outcome was less than desirable especially compared to that of living in a Tiny House.
The bloggers over at Mint have put out an interesting article about renting, they propose that they are in fact better off renting. The big assertion they make is that if you are modest renter, who can manage your budget, that it is actually better at building equity. By paying less than a mortgage, saving the difference and not assuming the risks, you can do better.
What do you all think?
So I found this neat interactive graphic that allows you to determine how much power what you have in your house is used. Now obviously this is an estimation, but it is still pretty neat. I will allow you to calculate the dollars spent on it, how many hours you can operate an appliance on 1 kw of power etc. Check it out.
