The Total Balance blog is the story of a 35 year old well-educated guy, who has decided to quit the rat-race and retire by the age of 50. The blog tracks the progress of reaching his FIRE goal (saving, investing, living). It is a true account of not only the sacrifices that has to be made along the way, but also the rewards that can be reaped by living frugally, and saving for the future.
