It's not impossible to live on $15,000 a year. I make $2,014 a month pre-tax (I'm 22 and a grad student on a stipend) and I save $714 of that off the top--and I'm usually able to live on less than what's left. I don't live in a particularly cheap city, either, although it certainly helps that I split rent and don't have kids or a car. Beyond that, I don't even think I'm that frugal. (But still awesome, yes? :))

Katie --

I wasn't thinking of students -- just people in the "normal" workforce.

But you're right -- students can live on a lot less. I remember doing so while at grad school too. Ahhhhhhh, the days of cheap dorm food -- and to be young enough not to gain weight from it. ;-)
