But what if you're already living the austere lifestyle. I don't have a smart phone. I only have 1 TV. I cook every day; rarely eat out. Don't have any kids to say 'no' to. Haven't been on a vacation in 12 years. Haven't been to a sporting event 2 years.
And don't tell me to give up Starbucks cause it ain't gonna happen.
Well first, I would tell you that you are my hero. I am striving for that lifestyle. I just paid off my truck way early, now about to pay off my student loans. Bring my lunch to work everyday so I don't use gas or extra money on eating out. Gave up my smart phone for just talk and text but if things go well my employer may take over my plan.
Among people I know, we are in the minority. And I know maybe one that makes over $250K.
