We did not move to Ecuador and then become frugal. We already were self sufficient and frugal before moving to Ecuador. We always have been good at saving money and still living a comfortable lifestyle and so coming to Ecuador and building our own furniture and seeking out value rents and learning to negotiate and shop smart is nothing new to us. That's why it's not that much cheaper for us to live here than in the US.
We're an Expat Family of Five, Living Frugal, Healthy and Happy Abroad. We lived in Cuenca Ecuador for five years and now we are in Salinas Ecuador where our adventure continues.We vlog several times per week where we share crucial insights and every day experiences to help others see what its really like to live in a Latin American country.
