<<Giving up cable -- well, I'll give up cable just as soon as DirectTV is permitted to beam down ABC and NBC to the Santa Barbara area -- and high speed internet, waiting to replace sweat pants or a dishwasher. I thought the originating idea of this board was retiring well, not eking by with minimal expense. As I understand it, FIRE stands for financially independant, retired early, but FI seems to have gotten lost in these posts. As I've said in a prior post, the subset of homeless folks who rebel against working could be thought of as an extension of RE, and living on the street will really save you money.
