Welcome to the Money Flamingo blog!
Money Flamingo is an Australian Financial Independence blog with a twist.
This blog chronicles the final 1000 days of our journey to freedom.
We hope you’ll join us for the ride!
Welcome to the January 2020 Project 1000 update! Did we get closer to reaching Flamingo FI over the last month?
We don’t usually share our numbers. However, we’ve decided to make an exception for our annual expenses. In today’s post we share the Money Flamingo household’s 2018 and 2019 spending breakdown.
Welcome to our December 2019 update. We finally crossed the 70% mark! Flamingo FI is getting closer!
Today I haves something special for you: An interview with a reader who was able to semi-retire in his 30s. Like many, he started off with a plan to retire early. But the closer he got to Financial Independence, his desire to stop working altogether disappeared. Instead, he decided to semi-retire and “coasted” his way to FI.
I read a lot. Well, I used to read a lot before Baby Flamingo entered the scene. These days I have a little less time but still manage to read (or listen to) 1-2 books a month, most of them on personal finance, investing and mindset. In this article, I will share how I manage to read almost all my books for free, using a mix of free services offered by local libraries and free trials for paid subscription services.
This is the first part of our Semi-Retirement series. Semi-Retirement is something that is not widely discussed in the FIRE community and it is a concept that we should all think about a little more. Depending on your plans for FI, semi-retirement will likely be part of the mix. We’ll start off by defining what Early Semi-Retirement means and how it relates to FIRE.
