We’ve done OK in saving and investing for retirement. We’re trying to retire early but we’re not extremely early. I’m targeting 50ish and Jill is looking at 55ish. Same retirement date, Jill is just a little older than me. 🙂 (And no, retirement savings tip #1 is not to find a sugar mamma.) In this section, we’d like to share some thoughts that made this possible. We’re not retirement specialists or financial advisors so please don’t take any of this as suggestion or advice. We’re just sharing what worked for us and what didn’t work for us. If it helps you reach your financial objective, great! That’s our goal.
