Top Ten Reasons To Lower Your Cost of Living

  1. The things you love most and that bring you the most joy are probably free.
  2. The thing you want most in your life is probably something that takes a lot of time, hard work, and patience, not a lot of money. Spending money is a distraction keeping you from the thing you actually want most.
  3. Technology is making valuable things less and less costly (education, idea sharing, automation, connection). You'd be silly not to take advantage of it.
  4. Increased cost of living means more things to maintain and keep track of (Mo' Money, Mo' Problems).
  5. The quickest way to personal wealth is to not buy something.
  6. If your cost of living is lower, chances are your carbon footprint and impact on the environment is as well.
  7. It's a lot easier to build savings, investments, and residual income to cover a smaller cost of living than a larger one.
  8. A lower cost of living means more security and a greater ability to adapt to change.
  9. Happiness doesn't come from things or status, it comes from self discovery, building community, and finding joy. A lower cost of living provides more time for the things that truly bring happiness.
  10. With a lower cost of living, you will have more time and more money to give to others to enrich their lives which in turn can bring you more joy.
