- FOOD (Dining out fast food included)
- HOUSING (Mortgage/Rent, Utilities, Repairs, etc..)
- TRANSPORTATION (Payments, Gas, Tolls, Parking, Insurance)
That leaves a whopping 20% for everything else. So what if you could build a smaller mortgage free home, or bake your own bread and make your own wine, plant a food forest or go down to one car and and a bike or move to an area that is pedestrian? What if your children's amusements were real and not virtual? (Still working on this one here.) I think life would have a sort of luxurious poverty to it and I think it would be just beautiful.
