Everyone should live on less. When we simplify our lives we liberate ourselves from the mind-numbing struggle just to survive. I started out working four jobs as I struggled to raise my kids as a single mother but we never had enough but when I began combining minimalism with frugality my life changed. I went from working four jobs to taking summers off to spend with my kids. I even stopped working a public job entirely for a few years but it eventually got to be boring so I went back to work part-time. I live on less a month than many earn in a week but my bills are paid and the majority of my time is my own to use as I please.
You can do it too if you want. Read my books to learn how.

The Slavery of Extreme Minimalism and Other Minimalist Musings is a great read. The essays written by Annie Brewer are sincere and thought-provoking. As I eliminate the stress-causing stuff in my life, I search the web for how others have embraced minimalism or simplicity. There are varying degrees of both and Annie's musings have helped me to really define where I want to end- free, free of energy-sucking stuff, financial burdens and a life that is my own. Annie has done this and I really admire her for that.
