Pretirement fun from last week

Stories of financial independence, saving money and early retirement

pretirement_livingTaking a cue from so many of my fellow personal finance bloggers, I wanted to start sharing some of my favorite readings from the last week. I’m calling the series Pretirement Fun!

Living the life of a semi-pretired stay-at-home dad keeps me pretty busy so I can’t guarantee I’ll be able to produce a summary each week, but I’ll do my best. Hope you enjoy!

Here are a few of my favorite things I read in the past week:

  • Mr. 1500 from 1500 Days wrote a delightful rant about one of the crappiest unnecessary spending items he’s found lately.
  • The always delightful Holly from ClubThrifty talked about the savings she’s seeing now that she works from home
  • Tim Stobbs at Canadian Dream Free at 45, laid out an interesting thought experiment: Could you retire today?
  • The point of pretirement is to live a happier, more stress-free life. That’s why I love that Tony talked about How to Reduce Financial Stress. Very smart piece!
  • Joe Udo at Retire by 40 produced a rare rant on stupid spending. You’ll be amazed just how stupid.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
