I’ve seen a few articles on the Internet lately trying to determine how much money we need for early retirement. A lot of it has to do with your lifestyle. If you are someone who likes to travel, eat out, or go to shows, you may need more money to maintain that lifestyle. This blog is for people who have been cutting back on expenses in anticipation of early retirement. While you are working and have a steady income, you don’t think about retirement too much. But, now is the time to take your budget planning efforts to the next level. Here we will discuss topics like maintaining your home, shopping for the best deals on food and clothing, paying off your mortgage, investing, and healthcare.
