Earlyretirementextreme.com has been growing exponentially since I registered my own domain a little over a week ago. I now have 65 subscribers (you can subscribe by choosing one of the options in the upper left) and possibly even more readers. This is fairly daunting considering the responsibility of providing useful content on a daily basis lest I waste a lot of people’s time. I can only imagine the implied responsibility of having thousands of readers like some blogs out there.

In case you are a new reader, I have a slightly odd tack to personal finance. I combine the idea of consuming as little as possible, which is generally appealing to ecologically minded people, anticonsumerists and voluntary simplicity/compacting/simple living fans, with the idea of maximizing investment assets at a fast pace, something that is appealing to capitalists and the fiscally conservative, and using capital income to pay for my consumption, which of course is appealing to retirees and the wealthy. Thus you will find a strange brew of eclectic ideas on this site. You have been warned πŸ˜€

Here are the carnivals:

CashMoneyLife presents the Festival of Frugality #107.

I recommend

Carnival of Money stories presents itself #41. In particular I would like to highlight The cost of owning a car because I think that owning a car is not necessary in many cases much less owning 2 or 3 cars.

See you tomorrow.
