See, my family and I live a very simple life. We are multimillionaires, but we don’t live in a big, fancy house. In fact, we have the smallest house in our neighborhood! We don’t go out to eat at 5-star restaurants every day. I cook gourmet meals for my family every day on an average of $100/week. We don’t buy a new car, new computers, new cell phones, or even new clothes, every year. Could we, if we wanted to? Yes! But I believe in living simply.
But simple does NOT mean boring! You would be amazed by the comments from people who hear the truth about how we live, and they accuse us of being boring. HA! In reality, we have a very exciting, very fulfilling life!
