Nice, I'll max out my 401-keg plan as soon as my Roth's maxed out...

Am I missing something with my math here, but wouldn't you need 4280 cans (assuming $.05 deposit) to get $214 back? Assuming you bought nothing but 30 packs, you would need 143 30 packs to get the required amount of cans. With $1000 to spend, that would work out to about $7 a 30 pack. I can't think of any beer you can get that cheap.

Maybe I should have just rolled with it, but I feel like challenging things today.

Ummm ... not every state has a recycling deposit for cans and bottles.

If your state does not have a deposit plan you may have to lay the cans out in the driveway and do a roll over.

Default A better way

There is a better way of doing it if you have some ground to work with. Start with a pair of breeding hogs and a few rabbits. Sell off all the male pigs but keep all the male rabbits. When you reach a point where you have 100 female pigs and 100 male rabbits you should be quite well off as you would have 200 sows and bucks!

Default Investing for the Future

RETIREMENT PLANNING FOR 2008

If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now
be
worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

If you had purchased $1000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have
$36.00
left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank
all
the beer,
then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, You would
have
had $214.00.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink
heavily
and recycle.

It's called the 401-Keg Plan.
