The DR way of doing things is slow and steady, like a crockpot, not a microwave. But the Retirement Extreme crowd takes things a bit differently. They save 80-90% of their income for 5-7 years and “retire” early. They live off of around $35,000 a year, walk everywhere, live extremely fugally, hardly eat out or travel with a hotel. Yet, they live extremely full happy lives. They have everything they need or want. They can buy organic food if they want, travel (although with lots of discounts), buy real estate and generally save money.
I enjoy reading these blogs too, but it seems quite different from DR’s way. Anyone else read these types of blogs?
