Guy living under $300 a month

One of the blogs I have been following is young Japanese guy’s who lives in a rural area of Japan under the budget of $300 per month. Immediately graduating from his college, he set off a trip to South by motorcycle and he settled in the beach. He camped there and went to work for a nursing home in that area

He was fortunate to rent out a rundown house at $42.37 per month and plans to move to another old and rundown house which offers him a free rent. Here’s his income/expenses for March.

日用品  incidentals           1,199
支出合計 total                27,162
His total expenses were JPY 27,162, which is about $230.
His paycheck was after income tax.
He may need to pay heath insurance and national pension, but given his income level, they may be another $150 per month I guess.
So he doesn’t need any investment income to be financially independent. His frugality allows him to retire any time, although he is still 26.
What a guy!
