If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you’ll know that we have a goal to retire from our jobs in just six years.
However, what you may not know is, until about a week before we published that post, we didn’t actually have a firm goal.
June flew by.
I was on my own this month for three weeks, as Poopsie was on a work trip in a remote Northern Territory town. Fortunately, he was fed all of his meals and this resulted in a reduced grocery expenditure- obviously he is the one who tips our grocery bills over the edge!
There is just something about New York City. I don’t even know how to begin to describe it.
Throughout my 20s, I travelled to New York City three times. I desperately wanted to show it to Poopsie, so we made it the final stop of our big trip.
To many, money is a taboo subject and not something that they ever talk about.
The financial field is a tricky one to navigate sometimes.
This can make it hard as an aspiring early retiree, to know how to build a financial community around you.
Welcome back to The Australian Blogger Interview Series.
May felt like a very spendy month to us.
Can you see us?
This is our first post where we don’t reveal our specific items of spending, but instead focus on our overall savings rate. Read about why we made that decision here.
Usually, this post would feature our May spending report.
However, we’ve recently decided to stop publicly chronicling every dollar we spend.
We are pretty certain about our path to early retirement and getting there in approximately six years (though we definitely have our doubts).
However, occasionally, I wonder what our lives would look like if we had no plans to retire early.
Unfortunately during this particular trip, we only got to spend one full day in Washington D.C.
However, we packed a fair bit into that one day in the United States capital.
Sometimes when I read other personal finance blogs, I find it hard to believe that any of the people who have successfully retired early (or are about to), have had any doubts along the way.
Lima’s don’t doubt.
