LaCroix and the team follow Reg's trail.
John: Life must be planned. I worked for years in mortgage collection and saw too many children lose their homes when parents embraced entitlement to the investment myth over opportunity and discipline; then, was able to save only a few hundred from themselves. My wife managed my white collar salary like a personal challenge and, in coming to the end, she did not vary from this strategy: Necessities only to complete Kroger 50% off, or a fraction of 10 for ten or, when available, senior green label discount (which has been discontinued) for specific weekly menus; Red Robin (for the endless root beer float) and Wal-Mart for non-meat items, once a month; plus Sam's meat runs every other month. This permitted her to work only as she wanted, with complete discretion, for the last fifteen years of her life. Also the happiest fifteen years of my life.
