Welcome to Lazy Man and Money readers,

Lazy Man and Money was the first personal finance blog I found and started reading and which inspired me to start this blog. In case you haven’t heard I have a slightly unorthodox take on personal finance: very high savings rates, little use of retirement accounts and index funds, a DIY attitude, and car-free living. This allowed me to leave my full time job after a handful of years and “pursue other interests” as they say. You can find more on my philosophy here and if you want to step up your own retirement plans, you can read my makeover series, which is summarized here. In particular, read the post on finding a place to live and the post about going car-free. I think those are the key determinants to retiring early.

Regular readers might have surmised that I have a guest post over at Lazy Man and Money today. Go check it out.
