A Retire Early Blog

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!

Our Favorite Posts

What's our two favorite posts we've written so far and why?

Jenni

What? My favorite post is on my switch to working part-time.

Why? This has been my favorite post so far because it helped me reflect on what is really happening right now in my life.  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.  

Chris

What? My favorite post so far deals with the struggle between being cheap and frugal.

Why? Simply put, it was fun to write! Rather than being overly focused on the technical reasons behind this or that financial decision, I simply wrote with some flowery prose for fun about a subject.
