She earns about $65,000 a year as an environmental health and safety specialist at the University of California at Berkeley. Scott adds about $10,000 to that by acting as a museum and science-center consultant, when he's not busy earning his Ph.D in science education at Berkeley (he has two years to go).

That has proven sufficient to maintain what they regard as a comfortable, though not luxurious, lifestyle.

"We try to live below our means," says Heather. "People think we're making great sacrifices, but we find it very liberating."

hmm...$75,000, and people think they're makign sacrifices. wtf?

don't look at me; i live somewhere very expensive and i don't make an amazing salary and i don't think i'm "making sacrifices" .. in fact i spend tons of money on myself, really, and although i have some debts i am working on it's all pretty doable. of course, i have no savings =P
