Tim Asked, Cost of Living in USA, Versus Living Abroad?

Really the correct question, the cost of living determines our standard, or quality of living.


Tim Asked, Cost of Living in USA, Versus Living Abroad?

Craig MunroStarr

Hi Andy, your "Cost of Living in the USA" was really really good. Very precise. regards, Craig


This is great Andy...I am on a fixed income of about $1600 mo. Cad. here in Canada...My rent is $200 per mo. for my moterhome site plus I have the basement of my sister's house...bath and laundry, drum room etc. in return for being available for gardening etc. Plus I have a truck and a German Shepherd.
My hope is to pay roughly the same down there from November to May every year just myself the way you do it. Am I dreaming? or am I on the right track?.That way I can stay a Canadian and never have to put up with cold and snow again!


Hello Allen,

To live on 1232 USD or 1600 Canadian is super easy in really about 175 countries. You are on the right track, there are some runaway expenses inside the USA, and Canada that are easy to avoid here. Mostly, there is less competition to be showing off rich ideas, like cars, motorcycles, and houses. Easier to fit in.

Thanks, Andy Lee Graham


Thanks, Andy! Good video. Now if I can just convince my wife. Glad to have her...but she makes everything more complicated. Not an issue in your life.


So good I quoted some of what you said on my facebook.
"its the belief that you must live a certain way according to the tribe that you live in."
"the tribe dictates the things that you have to do to be part of that tribe."
"a person like me escapes the cultural hooks of the tribe and we're able to travel."
