As of July, 2017, Food, Clothing and Shelter does not requires huge money. They can be managed as little.
FY June 2011 till August 2015, I ran away from our home and stayed in a small village in India.
My entire expenses for food, clothing and shelter was only INR 5,000 = 77.96 dollars per month.
I was in heaven, in peace and satisfied.
I experimented this to test my own gifted life and birth and I keep experimenting on daily basis as I 100% know well, I’m born to die and I have no rebirth.
So enjoying this one gifted life and birth to the best of my abilities, capabilities and the choices that I made for myself to keep satisfied than happy.
