First of all I don't care what is cool or in fashion. I don't care about what people think that I should or shouldn't do. I passed up on many things to buy. I did all of my own home improvements until my skill level forced me to hire someone to do it. I went to 15 year mortgages to pay off the house faster. I elimated all of my debts. I lived on the same amount of money for the last ten years and socked away the surplus. Any bonus went into the bank after giving to charities. All this was done so I can retire in 5 1/2 weeks at 60 1/2. I agree that dying at my desk is on the bottom of my wish list.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
