Grand Mammon

A 69-year-old Heidemarie Schwermer, grandmother of three, has lived without money (and presumabley sex) for sixteen years. In 1996, Heidemarie, a former (as in fired) schoolteacher and psychotherapist , decided to experiment with having no money for a year (because it was her only option). She reports that living without money gave her quality of life, inner wealth, freedom and no checking account fees. Her children were understandably horrified by her desire to swap services with hobos, but "have come around" (and by come around we mean find a way to have her declared legally insane.)
