If you just don't count a monthly budget sized single spending category—our mysterious "gift" expense—we stuck to our FIRE budget in August!Read More
Welcome! Thanks for joining our story as we transition from two mid-thirties career-driven folks who reached FI at 33 to retire early at 35! We’re documenting our experience leaving full-time work, sorting out our financial needs, and our mistakes. All in real-time on this blog!
If you’re unfamiliar with FIRE, you should start with Financial Independence, Retire Early.
Take a look around our blog or find a list of all the articles we’ve written.
We hope to see you around more often,

What's our two favorite posts we've written so far and why?
What? My favorite post is on changing from full-time to part-time work.
Why? This has been my favorite post so far because it helped me reflect on what is really happening right now in my life as I change from full-time to part-time work. Getting it all out seemed to make it real and gave me the kickstart I needed to complete the next thing on my to-do list.
What? My favorite post reflects the mission of my writing on TicTocLife, it’s on how comparison is the thief of joy.
Why? Core to why I write here is to use you to amplify the underlying values FIRE and TicTocLife represent—for you to be a positive comparison for those in your life. To lift up those around you and be a teacher. In that post, I wasn’t overstating the idea that it’s your superpower.
