I see ways in which people can survive for $25,000 for a year. This is equivalent to $2,000 per month of expense. I believe that one should be able to survive with such amount as long as they cut down on the unnecessary spending. Mr Money Moutache managed to keep his spending to $25,000 per annum. I believe that this is the matter of handling the expense and making best use of the resource. Over the past few years, I examined my spending and look at the various ways of reducing the expense. I managed to do so with a few expenses. It’s all in the mind.
