This Couple Shows How Living In A Cruise Ship Is Cheaper than Living In A House
a drop in the bucket: a small amount when compared to something else
Meet Angelyn Burk and her husband Richard, a couple in their 50s. They have chosen a different way of life. They live full-time on a cruise ship! Why? It’s less expensive than paying for a house.
They have been living on cruise ships since May 2021 and don’t want to stop. They spend about $100 each night. This is a drop in the bucket compared to a home mortgage or rent in their hometown in Washington.
On the ship, they don’t need to pay for food. And they only need to carry two suitcases of things. If they need anything, they can buy it on the ship or at the next stop. They love this way of life because it’s stress-free and inexpensive. They saved money for this all their life because they value experiences more than material things.
1. I’ve been saving money for a year now, but it feels like a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of a new car.
2. Learning ten words in a new language is just a drop in the bucket, but it’s a start!
3. Ten minutes of exercise a day may feel like a drop in the bucket, but it adds up over time.
