How to retire early...ask yourself some questions

How to retire early means asking yourself certain types of questions:

  • Is your credit card paid off every month or a vehicle to buy something you don't have the money for now?
  • Does Goodwill mean something to you, other than part of a Christmas carol?
  • Do you pay yourself first (save money) every month?
  • Do you know how much you spend to maintain appearances or keep up with the neighbors?
  • Do you know how much you spend on the basics (essential healthy groceries should be your biggest basic)?
  • Do you realize that other than spending on the basics your spending is keeping you from retiring early?
  • Do you realize that you actually use a very small percentage of your home on a daily basis?
  • Do you realize that your health should always be of paramount importance?

Is this more like you

If you can honestly say you that you understand the importance of asking yourselves questions like these you are a great candidate to retire early.

If these questions seem drastic in themselves you may not be a candidate to retire early.

Is this more you?

If you are still with me...read on.

If the questions above make a lot of sense to you...you are closer to retiring early than you think.

Other than food, basic shelter, a few clothes, your good health you don't need much.

frugal retirement living the payoff

Stop and think about how little consumption is taking place in this picture.

It is hard to spend money surrounded by water (unless the locals have a lobster they want to sell you).

We are self contained. Have adequate shelter. We are clothed.

We generate our own electricity, you need the phone we go ashore and use a pay phone.

We have all the food we want on board.

We read books instead of watching TV.

The radio on board keeps us in touch with the world and friends.

We could be in an isolated cove but are 200 yards from the dock.

400 yards from downtown Christiansted, St Croix, United States Virgin Islands, close to people, shops, church, what else do we need?.

Do we look like we are sacrificing anything in life? We are spending less than a $1,000 a month...you can too. We have also found the same freedom in RV Living, living overseas, and living in small spaces.

How to retire early...steps to take

In no particular order:

  • Eliminate credit card debt...you do not buy what you cannot pay for
  • Live within your means...keeping up with the neighbors is not smart
  • Have clear cut goals...that both you and your spouse have embraced
  • Do not listen to friends, family and co-workers...for reasons above
  • Develop skills to earn income if necessary...to stay retired
  • Just do it...the worse thing that can happen is to go back to work

With the exception of developing skills to earn, this is exactly what we did. Nothing can take away or replace the fun we have had in the last 16 years...you can do this too ...in fact what you have is an advantage over us.

If bad debt is holding you back from retirement, these credit fixing companies can help get you to where you need to be.
