HOUSE OF FI FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE FOR FAMILIES

SAVE MORE MONEY

FOR YEARS we believed that we never had enough money to save for retirement. 

When we discovered the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) our minds made a complete 180 shift about what we could and couldn’t accomplish. 

No more living paycheck-to-paycheck. 

If an emergency happens, we have money in the bank to take care of it! What a relief that is.

We began cutting expenses and made saving money on the top of our list of priorities. 

Our savings rate, once only about 5-7%, is now at 29% and it is growing every quarter.

We keep track of our progress using Personal Capital’s FREE APP.  We can store all of our accounts there and have a visual picture of where we are in our progress to Financial Independence.
