* I’m in the process of moving, so my friend Purple from A Purple Life wrote an epic guest post for today. She has a not-so-harebrained-scheme to retire next year on half a million dollars. I admit that I wondered how exactly she was planning to pull it off when most early retirees save at […] The post Yes, I’m Retiring With Just $500,000 appeared first on Financial Mechanic. ...

Exactly one year ago today, I hit “Publish” on my first post.  My purpose for this blog was simple: I just wanted to write. I set my expectations low.
