Re: Re

Bilbo's treasures from his adventures were more than enough to support him and Frodo for a long time to come. But even without that gold he was well-off. He came from two of the wealthiest families in the Shire - Tooks and Baggins, and Frodo came from another wealthy clan - the Brandybucks. The Bag End estate seemed to support itself on stockpiled wealth and reputation. I don't believe either Frodo or Bilbo had any kind of occupation.
