We are the minimalistsonfire. That means that we live with less so we can be Financially Independent and Retire Early (onfire).    We know that each of our choices enable us to achieve our goals much faster.  People’s willingness to share by writing books and blogs, making podcasts, and offering online courses has shaped our thinking and decisions.   We want to join the movement by adding our voice.
Very soon we will celebrate being debt free and have a net worth of one million dollars.   What better time to look back at what worked and what didn’t work.   On this blog I zoom in on each area of our lives and see if there are even more ways we can refine our financial decisions.  I want to share our lessons with you but also with our teenage daughters as they start to make lifestyle decisions that will affect their financial futures.  

Minimalism leads to both financial success and a more contented life.  As you decide what is valuable in your life you are able to live the life YOU want to live instead of trying to live the life your friends are living.  We hope our story challenges you to think differently and makes you laugh along the way!  Welcome!
