Working with much less, but happy

September 25th, 2021 at 03:22 am

Significant loss of income is expected by mid November in our home. I am grateful that we have no mortgage, no small children to support and no consumer debt  The loss of income is voluntary. This was a second try at a profession that I feel may have reached the end of the road. We will be living on my husband's income which derives from a dimunitive state pension, early social security benefits and $500 surplus on a rental property. Our health insurance is covered by the state pension and it costs less than $50 a month. Any money I can make will go to fund my retirement through a Roth IRA. In all, I feel very grateful to have play the cards right and stay out of debt. We also have a healthy emergency fund.

    Your low monthly health insurance amount is fantastic! Like you, I am making things work on a lower income, but my life is comfortable and happy. Having no debt makes it possible.
