    Well, I have been doing all right with a household income of around $20,000 a year between my wife and I. We drive used cars, manage to pay the mortgage, and neither of us works full time. Of coruse, when we are out a college, I suppose we will have to get real jobs. If it were up to me I would live in a travel trailer on a campground and never look back. But some people need to drive fancy cars with shiny rims I suppose.

    My lifestyle requires very little money............

    fuel for my heat, for my vehicle, for my taxes

    I have few true needs, and bask in nature and its provisions.

    It is not a " cheap" life, it is a responsible and productive one.

    @ Jonesy0311 - I could totally dig the camping life style. @onegoodwoman:  I agree.  In fact you and I seem to have a similar lifestyle.  It takes less then $700 a month for me to thrive.

    Try paying for rent, food,basic bathroom items, and a basic fittnes center membership. The fitnes centers with only weights cardio can be done anywere, idk why some pple pay to use treadmills. Its cheap and healthy. Instead of wathing tv when you get home you just eat and go to bed for about 9 or 10 hours a night. You wake up eat, go to the fittnes center, and go to work
