Living for under 10k this year (including rent!)
« on: February 03, 2014, 02:01:24 PM »
ALRIGHT LET'S DO THIS. As far as I understand, MMM does it for 25k for 3 people, but that's not including his house, which he owns, so that reduces his potential costs by a TON.

Let's see if I can do better while living in MONTREAL!
Just follow along this epic journey!

p.s. I don't know if this is the place to start this, don't yell at me :,(

Herbert Derp proposed the same gauntlet here:
http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/forum/throw-down-the-gauntlet/spend-less-than-$10-000-in-2014/

..which lead to some interesting discussion and proposals of tweaks to it.  My favorite version was the one CommonCents came up with, which is, essentially, live below the poverty line (as defined by your country for the number of people in your household).

Good luck pox!

We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with two kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.
