Stop thinking so "traditionally." Lack of a 9-5 job doesn't mean
lack of money. I survived just fine for over a year (with SERIOUS
expenses) between piecemeal consulting work (typically less than one
day per week) and buying/selling between the gov't surplus market and
eBay...which is particularly fun because I could keep the best stuff
for myself. :)
If I can do it, anyone can.
