  • It isn't easy. You will have to figure out what is a luxury and cut it out of your budget. If you can, grow a garden, raise and butcher chickens and a cow. Go fishing. When I was a kid, my parents and our friends and neighbors would either donate their extra veggies and fruit to whomever wanted them or they traded for something that they wanted.

  • Make sure you can live on one income before doing it. Start saving your income and see how things will go.
