Don't you guys need to replace clothes? Aside from the occasional new T-shirt I get for fun, I have worn out pants and shoes that had to be thrown out. I must congratulate you on your extreme discipline in not buying fun new little doo-dads. You're doing a lot better than I am at learning to not be a spender.

Out of curiousity, why do you post the statement "we could live on $1500/month...." each month? You should SHOW that you can do it because until you do, it's just talk.

Sonia,
We do replace clothes. We just replace basics inexpensively. We need underwear, jeans, & shorts. We get t-shirts for free by volunteering. So $70 a month is plenty for us for laundry and clothing. :)

Laura,

I've covered your question before. We DID do it when we volunteered at the National Wildlife Refuge last winter, so it's not "just talk". :)

Check it out: December 2006, $1,100; January 2007, $800; February 2007, $1,200. Now those months didn't include insurance, but if we add in our $405 a month for all of our insurance (RV, Truck, Life, Health, Umbrella), that would be an average of $1,438 per month for those three months. :)

I post that statement each month because I want folks to know that they don't HAVE to have $2,500 or $3,000 a month to live on as full-timers. We choose not to live that frugally and not to workamp or volunteer that much right now, but we have and we can live on $1,500. :)

Howard
