Two humans (and dog) in the Greater Boston Area discuss frugality, early retirement, and being happy. We aim to “retire” in 2019 at the ages of 29 and 35.
Felicity is an electrical engineer, crafty maven, and amateur financial planner.
Fergus is a software engineer, frugal chef extraordinaire, and puppy wrangler.
Fluffster is the canine member of the FFF family. He is responsible for covering our apartment in fur.

Who We’re Looking For
Do you wish you could slap “citation needed” stickers on random web pages? Do you yell at cooking books for lying to you about prep times (It’s never just 20 minutes!)? Do you feel like there’s something more to life, but don’t want to wade through dozens of unscientific self-help books for the one pearl of wisdom? Do you hate it when people blatantly try to sell you that one thing they say will clearly “change your life” when you know they get a huge cut of profits? Have you ever called yourself an efficiency nerd or dreamed of traveling the world? Then welcome, come, sit down, and have homemade hot cocoa on us.
We don’t have all the answers. We’re also bad at selling things, so we mostly don’t*. We do have a plan to retire after less than ten years of full-time work (sorry, Fergus, I’m discounting your grad school stipend from counting as full-time work), and we research random questions to help us on our journey. We publish calculators just for fun, always try to DIY first to save money, and we post an absolutely ridiculous number of pictures of our dog.
*There is no amount of money that will make us shill BlueHost, but we give honest reviews with some affiliate links to useful products and companies with souls. We also always research the competition and list pros/cons to each option. Our goal for monetizing this site is to cover costs. Above and beyond that, we’ve pledged to give >=50% of profits to charity.
