The question of where to retire once you reach financial independence has come up several times in the last month. It started about a month ago when my big sister in spirit sent me an email.

It’s almost the middle of the month, so it’s the right time to look back on the month that was: October. I hope everyone had a great, reflective Veteran’s Day/weekend.

This is this year’s third, and likely final, installment of a series of humblebrags frugal grocery shopping wins. Some readers probably saw this coming after Rich Chicken, Poor Chicken and Rich Pig, Poor Pig. The titles are a parody of a financial book you may have heard of.
