I liked Alex's other posts. There isn't a wide blogging audience on how to live on 36K a year or less for a household of two because that is what many people in the U.S. do anyway. They don't have any choice.

But on forums like this where many of the posters are used to earning much more (see the zip code thread) it is an interesting challenge to live on $36K and still try to keep the basics in place of the higher income kind of life.

+1 Something is afoot here and we will eventually know what that something is.
