Do You Like to Do-It-Yourself?

When Fed Ex is not distributing free firearms to unsuspecting citizens, apparently they are providing creative cheapskates with materials for furniture making.

Jose makes all his furniture out of Fed Ex boxes, and he even has a website to show you how to do it. This guy must have (a) way too much time on his hands and (b) no desire to ever bring a girl home to his apartment.

I also don't totally buy that this guy doesn't have enough money to buy furniture. Having furnished my apartment with lots of free and next-to-free stuff from Craigslist, I know that furnishing your place sometimes just involves doing the leg work to pick up the furniture that people don't want. Regardless though, I'm sure this required a lot of time and effort and it certainly is a creative use of free materials. It probably last longer than most Ikea furniture too!

P.S. Is it just me, or does the use of the word "ghetto" on his site hint that this guy isn't really poor?
