Inspiring!

Hey Rick, your willingness to live on the bare essentials is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your budget - it's very useful to have as an example of what is enough. I've long been uneasy (and thus mostly unwilling) to spend money on non-essential things because of how much I can accomplish with my donations instead.
One of the best ways to maximize one's impact through donations is by giving effectively; have you heard of GiveWell? It turns out the best organizations do as much as 1000 more good than average ones; giving $1 to the best ones is as good as giving $1,000. It's pretty awesome :)
Keep up the good work!
