I'm not worried about it for me.
I already have a pretty good handle on it here.
But it's pretty fascinating to think about just how little you could possibly live on and still be happy.

I noticed that you always define it in terms of what makes YOU happy. "Eating out a couple times a week," for example.

We almost quit eating out for a while. I think we might have eaten out once a month or so. Didn't make any difference at all in how happy we were.

Happy for me is family and friends and good books and sunshine and, lately, an internet connection. That last is the only one that costs any money.
