Mike and Lauren Exposed! Income, Expenses, Net Worth Revealed

Hope you’re feeling nosy! We’re about to strip down to our financial birthday suit and reveal our income, expenses and net worth. We did it to keep ourselves accountable to our goals and make things more interesting for you guys.

We debated for months whether we should or not, but decided it would need to happen sooner or later, so why not sooner!

We’ll cover our expenses in detail in another video.

Here’s a link to the Blank_Net_Worth_Projections spreadsheet I referenced in the video.

Ways We Save Money For Early Retirement

Here is a tour of our house. We show just a few of the ways we’re able to save 75% of our income every month.

The biggest budget items for most people are:
1. Housing
2. Transportation
3. Food

We keep costs down by living simply in a small house, saving cash for our car, and limiting our restaurant eating to $50/mo.

Also be sure to DIY everything, buy used, and cut your energy costs as much as possible (gas for the car and electricity at home).

How To Retire Early – Our Plan for Financial Independence

Want to know why we do the things we do? Our goal is retire extremely early by saving 75% of our income. If you’re interested in financial independence definitely check out Mr. Money Mustache (link below).

You don’t need a high income to retire early. But, you are going to need to give up a lot of “things” for financial freedom. Some people think living without luxury isn’t living, we think living without time isn’t living. We just want people to know they’re making a choice.
