So the whole question is how little could you live on comfortably if you had no rent or house payment (owned your home) no car payment grew a garden?
Add the idea that you could walk, ride a bike or take the bus some or most of the time to work and shop.
Could you save money?
Be sure to count in power, insurance and food you would buy as well as entertainment. Also allow for clothing, hair cuts and medical. Would you be able to thrive on say $25 k or $30k per year? Oh don’t forget phone and Internet and cable TV if you use them.
Could you grow a significant amount of food in your backyard garden to take a bite (pun intended) out of your grocery bill?
My thinking is yes if the major costs in life are taken care of there is time and money for living a great and comfortable lifestyle.
Living in the right community would be a key consideration in this life as it would foster it. Like minded people could share resources and help each other thrive regardless of the economy. Clothing food transportation and other things like tools and child care could be shared or bartered.
Just curious as to what the perspective is out there thoughts and ideas you might share with everyone.
Thanks in advance.
