I have undertaken a LBYM (live below your means) lifestyle for the
last several months, and would like to sing it's praises.

I recently finished Thomas Stanley's "The Millionare Next Door" and
"The Millionare Mind". Both books deal with his extensive research
on millionares, who they are and how they got there. His main point
is that the vast majority got there in this lifetime, on their own.
They stay married to the same person for life, and they are very
pragmatic about spending money. They are not at all what we have
come to expect via the media.

I am currently pursuing a more advanced state of what could be
termed "voluntary simplicity" in pursuit of this goal.


Nice pictures.
