I was amazed at the lifestyles the majority of the people who were financially independent lived.

I truly thought tht my LW and I lived a pretty PAW lifestyle but I guess not after reading the book.

I do have a disagreement with one of the points however. I've always made it a habit (maybe mistakenly so) of buying the best vehicle I could afford then driving it forever. Now were not talking Mercedes here but Nissans and the like. I'm not sure I'd put my trust in a vehicle that was purchased from a private individual though these people sem to think it's a good way to do things.

We do however, live beneath our means and prefer to live that way for a while longer. Perhaps we could save a little more though...hmmmm.
