This could be why you have a hard time imagining living on $30K a year.

Nope. I have a hard time imagining living on $30K a year because I've done the numbers on our expenses. Basic expenses. So I know what it costs.

Of course, I could always move to a hovel somewhere and that would take care of the cost from your perspective, I'm sure. But it would not be a satisfying retirement for me.

Everyone's mileage varies on this.
Or so I'm told.
