I'm 23 years old, and hadn't really even considered FIRE until I signed up for the message boards about 2 months ago.I'm in the same position as you, except that I'm 3 years younger. But these message boards was the first time I thought seriouslly about FIRE. I don't have much $ saved up, but after reading TMF and talking on these message baords, I've begun to save a part of each check I get this summer.What I do have is 0 credit card debt, thanks to good teaching by my parents. Hopefully by next month I'll have the $1000 I need to open up a Roth IRA with Vanguard. My goal from now on is to save 20% pretax of every check I get. I figure now while I have no wife, kids, or house is the best time to save as much money as I can.I'm looking forward to reading and participating on this board, and helping everyone work toward their common goal.-tdx
