Yes, it would be nice if a few more board readers would grow their net worth to a million plus and join us early retirees. Just don't buy 'too much ' house because it consumes 'too much electricity, too much gas, too much insurance, too much tax, too much maintenence, and winds up being 'too big' for the people living in it". That 'too much' can mean their nest egg never gets to be 'enough'.

Very well stated! If I cross-stitched, I'd put this on a pillow. As it is, I think I'll print it out and post it in our kitchen.

The creation of this board compelled me to finally read Stanley's books. I've just finished reading The Millionaire Mind after first reading The Millionaire Next Door. I found both books to be fascinating, informative, and surprising at times. I particularly liked the chapter on homes and economic households.

Looking forward to continuing threads and catching up on the discussion
