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:
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).
Here’s everything we knew about raising goats before we bought our kids (baby goats) on craigslist. They are a lot more fun that we expected, but they still take a little work.
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.
