I enjoyed watching it. I may never follow in their footsteps, but I sure agree with the one woman who said, essentially, "having money is freedom, having stuff is not."

I am about to watch this and am looking forward to it, but I must admit that the first guy to be featured said something that put my back up a little. At just 21 seconds into the film, he says,

"You guys live in nice houses, you have all the comforts. You've got very limited freedom."

That's a bit of a broad statement. I have not watched past this point yet but already, I'm thinking this guy, for whatever reason, is on very low income and is trying to kid himself that everyone with more money than him is worse off. Anyway, I do enjoy this general subject, and am looking forward to watching.

EDIT - Oh! I see that the guy in question is Bob Wells from This is going to be interesting. I like his site!

ER, for all intents and purposes. Part-time income <5% of annual expenditure.

Running water, AC, and central heat has spoiled me.

Yeah they are living a little to low for me. I agree a little spoiled to a/c heat and a house for grandkids to come see us. 😀
