Poopsie and I had an incredibly busy November. We spent a week in Newcastle for my best friend’s wedding. I was the Maid of Honour which I thoroughly enjoyed, but it did come with some busyness and some nerves about … Continue reading → ...

Christmas. For some, it is the most joyous time of the year and for others, it can be very stress-inducing. It should be an end of year cleebration, a chance to take stock, relax and enjoy with family and friends. … Continue reading → ...

Like many FIRE bloggers, Poopsie and I are interested in giving back to our community. We realise how fortunate we are to be in a position to pursue FIRE, and we’re always conscious of doing our bit to help others. … Continue reading → ...

If we didn’t already love New York City before, we were now smitten! It was now the place we became engaged, committing to spend the rest of our lives together. About a year before our trip, Poopsie and I had … Continue reading → ...

Welcome to The Australian Blogger Interview Series. We noticed the Australian personal finance community growing, mostly through our interactions on Twitter and we wanted to continue to foster this great camaraderie. We’ve reached out to as many Australian personal finance … Continue reading → ...

Another very tough month for us savings wise, but for an expected and necessary reason. This month, we paid the school fees for Poopsie’s kids. At a little over $4000 it took up a significant chunk of our salary for the month. This is a once a year cost and we prefer to cash flow it rather than pull it from savings. Poopsie’s daughter is only in grade six, so we ...

Recently, some of our favourite bloggers, Mr. and Ms. Our Next Life, revealed themselves after being anonymous for a few years. They revealed themselves in a pretty fun way, which prompted me to ask Poopsie, “how should we reveal ourselves in six years?” His response: “I think we should remain anonymous.” I was quite surprised by this response and admittedly, pretty disappointed. I never intended for us to remain anonymous forever and was ...

Welcome back to another edition of Poopsie’s Adventures in DIY. This series will mainly chronicle how we insource instead of outsource, and hopefully provide you with some inspiration to do the same! Over the last few weeks our kitchen sink has become slower and slower to drain. As a conscientious man, I did my best to ignore it, until it just stopped draining altogether. So I did what I always do…I ...

Long time readers probably know that we have always been undecided about exactly where we would retire. For quite some time, we have been tossing up between retiring to Newcastle and Canberra. And finally, we’ve made a decision! But before I reveal the location (if you must know now, you can skip straight to the bottom) we chose, I’ll give a rundown on why we wanted to live in these two wonderful ...

September was our worst month of the year for savings rate. As we revealed last week, we are paying for a wedding and a honeymoon, but that’s definitely not the only reason we had a low savings rate. Our water, electricity and gas bills were all due. We have recently switched electricity suppliers in an effort to lower costs and this was our first full bill from them. We are very pleased ...
