Financial Independence Ireland: The lessons learned from a redundancy, a trial period of FI and not being ready to buy when the market was down.
Congratulations to The Escape Artist for making it through Dry February and living to tell the tale. In this post he shares what he’s learned from the experience.
Cheesy Finance: Based on this already “old” post by Early Retirement Extreme (ERE), Jacob was able to live off $5.000-7.000 per year, as late as 2011. For argument sake, let’s assume that this $7.000 annual spending in 2011 is now $7.714 in today’s money (2018). This would be about €6.250/year (current exchange rate ~$1.233/€), can you survive on this amount in the Netherlands? How low can you go? In the Netherlands at least!
