Default "Being Frugal is For the Rich"

Interestingly, there's no mention of the Dacyczyns. (Creators of "The Complete Tightwad Gazette," for you youngsters.)

What if buying a country house with its own apple orchard were as easy as giving up artisanal cheese and pre-sliced carrots for a while? What if you were able to retire in your thirties by simply living more “intentionally” and investing in low-fee index funds? If all that sounds peachy, then you’ve got to meet the Frugalwoods.

You might have read their story in The Guardian, but in any event, here’s the spiel. The Frugalwoods — real names Liz Willard Thames and Nate Thames — are a Millennial couple who did the nine-to-five non-profit thing in Cambridge, Massachusetts for several years before realizing they were trying to “buy their way into happiness” and deciding they had to break free. How? By retiring early, of course! So they squirreled away the majority of their income — in 2014, they saved an impressive 71 percent — cut back on things like eating out at restaurants and taking public transportation to work, and started a blog about their lives.

The Frugalwoods soon had enough money saved to escape their “frenzied” city grind. They bought a four-bedroom house in Vermont and began a leisurely new life on 66 acres of woods, streams, and apple trees. Within a few years, the Frugalwoods garnered a vocal audience of aspiring frugalists, a book deal with HarperCollins, and enough guest spots on money podcasts to catch the attention of NPR and The New York Times...

I heard someone other than myself say the word frugal out loud for the first time in two decades yesterday. And he said it about me.
