Re: Nesaro's Journal

I use a smartphone app to keep track of my expenses and bin them into categories like rent, insurance, groceries-staples, groceries-discretionary, gasoline etc. I usually have a rough idea of each mo...

Re: Nesaro's Journal

I think I was just on the verge of succumbing to the pressure you speak of when I stumbled across MMM by chance. I lucked out, who knows maybe I'd be completely unsatisfied and directionless commuting in my F-150 if it wasn't for dumb luck. Props for getting there on your own. Thank you! And Yes! T...

Re: Hello!

Hello and Thank you! I browsed your journal a bit before I signed up and found it very inspiring how you reduced your lifestyle expenses. I was impressed by your consistency in bike commuting and how you organized your work clothes. It is priceless to see how far other people get towards their goals...

Nesaro's Journal

Hello! This will be my journal where I document my path to ER(E). I think this will be the place where I "think out loud", shape my ideas and share my strategies, plans and goals. Sometimes just writing down what occupies my mind. So I typed the following wall of text into my first post in the "Say ...

Hello!

Hi all, 33 yo male here, been a lurker for just a few weeks but I am feeling very inspired by this knowledgeable, broad and likeable community - so I figured I might as well join and try to give back as much as I can by sharing my thoughts and experiences (got nothing else to offer I'm afraid). I in...
