It is the question, I asked several world travelers and is the most common question I get from people:

How can you afford to travel around the world?

Here is my transparent reality. For me, it is all in the numbers. I love my spreadsheets!  I sat down and looked at my spreadsheet and figured out: how much I spend at home each month. Of course, every month is slightly different, but I calculated the average monthly expenditures from a year of my life living in a 2000 sq ft house in Round Rock, Texas. You can see my spending in obviously no particular order.
