    No bull, legit details here. Break down how much you spend on what. Could inspire some people to downsize their lifestyle, could inspire others to live a dream life they always wanted. Ask questions if someone inspires you or intrigues you.

    Wherever I lay my hat is my home.

    Great Idea for a thread.

    BUT are we talking about Canadian Dollars or US Dollars?

    I live in Kansas City MO, in a pretty good neighborhood splitting a duplex with a friend.

    Our rent is $675 per month, water/sewer $65 every 2 months, Gas averages $80 per month over the entire year, and electric averages $80 per month over the entire year. Internet = $20.00 per month

    Split between us 2 that is:

    Rent: $337.50
    gas: $40.00
    Electricity: $40.00
    Water/Sewer: <$20.00
    Trash: 7.50 per month
    Internet: $10.00 per month


    $337.50 + $40.00 + $40.00 + $20.00 + $7.50 + $10.00 = $455 per month

    I spend maybe $50-60 per week for food so at MOST add $250.00 per month.

    So if I don't drink alcohol or go out to eat - I can and have lived off of about $700 - $800 per month for a year and 3 months now.

    Holy smokes - am I reading that right? $7,000/month for rent? Even if that is Australian dollars that just about equals US dollars:
