Living Big & Traveling Far on $8,000 a Year (or Less!)
Ecological, Economical, Efficient, Organic & Abundant Living
I've gone on dozens of trips in the past five years – California, Georgia, Vermont and even Kaua'i island. If I had a hundred dollars for each time someone asked me, “How can you afford to travel all the time?” . . . then the title of my book would be different.
In 2012 I lived off of $5,000.
In 2013 I lived off of $6,000.
In 2014 I lived off of $7,000.
And when I say "lived off of", I mean everything. That's even before taking the taxes out!
If this isn't surprising enough, my wardrobe is organic clothes and my diet is organic and vegetarian. Needless to say, these little details have surprised people I know, especially affluent people who feel they can't afford yoga, organic clothes or even organic nuts!
