In light of some recent threads I thought this would be fun to share.

I watched some of this.

This country would be a heck of a lot better off if people would live below their means.

Cost of insurance and registration is crazy cheap there. She had 36 dollars a month for 2 cars and here in Michigan I pay 80 a month for a 25 year old piece of junk. Registration is 200 dollars a year for my 500 dollar car.

Lady in the video is gonna die an old maid...alone and with someone else spending her money. Her financial lifestyle is not realistic for 99.9% of people.

maybe not 100% but the idea of living on way less than you make, maxing out retirement accounts EARLY in life, some good principles she lives by. My expenses are higher than hers, but our income is much higher too.

She claims to have 1M+ in assets, so replacing a $4k car is not difficult. She carries ONLY liability ins. on her vehicles. I pay $255/mo for insurance on a 2015 and 2017 vehicle. Property taxes are $1000/yr.

I suppose we should all get used to having less, whether we like it or not, That's the end result of socialism.

Even if it was only 1k they charged you for living in your own home, how does someone consider any tax “reasonable”?

That's frugal, not poor. There's a now retired Dr. couple here that you'd never know they were doctors if you saw them out. Old clothes, cars, picking up pop cans on the side of the road.

I want to leave land and money to my kids. More importantly, if something unfortunate happens I don't want to take handouts from the government.

Saving and prepping for the worst is good. Past generations understood this simple concept.
