Re: FIRE Recommended Reading List
Another book I would recommend is "Tightwad Gazette"
some of the ideas are absolutely crazy, but the principles she puts forward would be helpful in anyone trying to live below their means and save for retirement. There are many helpful ideas in the book, such as calculating how much is costs to cook from scratch vs. prepared vs. eating out.
That being said, I had no motivation to make my kids halloween costumes out of dryer lint or use bread wrappers for rubber pants for my babies, but as I said before the basic principles of not wasting money and use it up or wear it out philosophy are an interesting read.
Along the way, when you are slogging through books like the four pillars I would also recommend "The Good life" by the Nearings. They lived simply and worked hard at labors of love as opposed to wages for useless objects that end up in the landfill.
It isn't all about money, it is about living too.
