It almost seems surreal. My wife and I have been living on the road in our little 200 square foot Airstream for over two years.

Okay, I’m about to show you a technique that might scare you – calculating everything that you’ve spent on Amazon.com. Amazon, as most of us know, makes it incredibly easy to part with our money. They probably single-handedly keep UPS in business, too. If you’re as curious as I was about how much you’ve spent […] The post How to calculate your total Amazon spending appeared first on Think Save Retire. ...

A couple weeks ago, I asked on Twitter about what it’s like to write a book. How much time does it take? Does it completely take over your life? Does it actually pay off?

Over the years, I have become more and more convinced that life is nothing but a mind game, and those of us who understand that game and play within its simple boundaries often do the best in life.

In total, the relentless pool of consumer debt has squeaked past $1.3 trillion.  Okay, WTF?

Sometimes, the stuff that people say about early retirement (and early retirees) is pretty f’ed up. It is assumed that early retirement is the end of productive life and that unless we’re swimming in millions in cold hard cash, Early Retirement will eat us alive.
