Retire by 40? 3 Couples Share How They Plan to Make It Happen
For most of us, early retirement means moving to Boca Raton at 60 instead of 65—and that’s only if you’ve been diligent about growing your nest egg.
But there are people out there who are determined to retire decades before that, and who will do whatever it takes to quit their day jobs before the gray hairs set in.
How, you ask?
By pinching as many pennies as possible now so they can live the good life later.
Curious to see just what it takes to reach such a lofty goal, we asked three couples to share the seriously frugal moves they’re making to get to retirement—fast.
For some, the end game is traveling the world on their extreme retirement savings. For others, it’s leaving the rat race with the help of passive income.
Whatever their definition of success, the one thing they have in common is a willingness to give up some creature comforts in the here and now in order to retire on their own terms.
