A Real Degree?

Hmmm...my brother has a degree in philosophy (summa cum laude, phi beta kappa) and had an extremely lucrative career. My other brother dropped out and is a successful entrepreneur. I studied anthropology and had a fine career as a technical writer and editor. My mom went to secretarial school and retired as an Asst VP. (Maybe we're just over-achievers in my family ;-)

Plenty of frugal people own Apple products. I'm typing this on an iPad and FIREd at 55.
