Well, I just did something that may just get me kicked out of the FIRE club.

I bought a new condo, my dream home, to be finished in about a year. And it's not cheap. But it's the place I want to retire in, and it's gives me something I haven't felt in many years -- a sense of home.

And I plan to live there alone or with a female roommate. After an eventful year with a fixer-upper house and living with my SO, I've realized that some things just aren't worth scrimping on. I'll still be saving, just not as aggressively as I once had. But having a mini-vacation every day on a lakefront, and being able to live life according to *my* terms and my own schedule again, is worth working for.

If anything, I think you have the definition of FI/RE. What fun is retirement if you don't have a place you feel comfortable in, whether it be a townhouse or an RV.
