I doubt I'll have a sharp decrease in spending as I am way out of the "normal" range. I suspect some of the drop the article's retirees experience is out of necessity and/or out of living a very conspicuous consumption lifestyle while working. I already watch my spending and doubt that it would decrease much upon retirement. In fact, I suspect it would actually increase since I have a lot of interests that I currently lack the time to pursue.

The biggest problem (nice problem to have I suspect) is that most articles and information available is for the layman. Most of us in the self-selected "FIRE world" are a different breed and thus different rules apply.
