Reduce my cable package.
I won't drive as much, so the gas bill comes down.
Moving back to the farm eliminates the water/sewer bill
Doing my own garden, more fishing, hunting and cutting back or cutting out some of my more expensive luxury foods.
Reducing the retirement fund :)) (after I've retired of course) :))
It does add up when you put it all together.
Of, having all the children out of the house doesn't hurt either :))
Will be a little better when I hit 59 1/2 when I can start drawing div payments from the IRA.
Debt free, mortgage free my expenses are general living, running a 4 x 4 and livery on the farm for my ponies. Live a very quite life these days.
Your forum has definately given me lots to think about, how I can make this happen for real. It has been really lovely to share your experience.
I already know how I want to spend my days :)
