I came across this thread on CF and thought it might help in your planning.
Cruising on $500 per Month . . . - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

Lots of good discussion on what items need to be in your budget, what is critical spending and what kind of life you'll lead at $500/mo budget. There are, of course, differing opinions throughout the thread on what is necessary, what is missing etc. So lots to help you create your own particular financial plan while you save up at your current job.

A good honest book to read is by Tom Neal All in the same boat. BEST WISHES in breaking out of what is considered the normal......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

Thanks guys. I appreciate all the book suggestions. I am getting so much info together for my plan! It's looking more and more doable, and i'm beginning to get less and less intimidated by the idea of setting sail.

One thing I have already done in preparation is to order "the Wirie" for wifi for my boat. As soon as it gets here i'm canceling my internet. that's an extra $50 a month towards the kitty!!

My boss is funny too,, In the last two weeks he has asked me to fill in for two dif over time shifts. I've been like "Dude, you don't even have to ask just put me on the schedule !". He's loving the fact that I say yes to every opportunity to work extra.

Been following this thread like I follow all the ones on this subject--I like to see what the dreamers are dreaming. A lot of these just don't look like they're going to go anywhere. But you seem like you have a good head on your shoulders, pistonbully, and I have no doubt you'll do what you're dreaming. Good luck to you. I hope you stay on Sailnet as you work on it.
