I’ve recently started following blogger Mr. Money Mustache, a frugal dude who “retired” at 30 years old. I’ve added him to my blogroll on the right. Though he only posts once or twice a week, his backlog is really solid and entertaining. His writing style is frank and to the point, and doesn’t pull punches on what he agrees with or doesn’t, including fighting lawyers and ripping on Dave Ramsey a little. He’s got a lot in common with us men in trying to balance family, maintaining or building wealth, fitness and recreation. He doesn’t eat bread, drinks moderately, enjoys camping and basic travel versus big extravagant trips and has a home gym. He get’s around 30,000 unique visitors a day, so is fairly well read, but his message is one I subscribe to even if I can’t quite reach the depths of frugality that he does. I may get to his state at some point, I only wish I would have started earlier on a more frugal life journey and learned to enjoy the happiness that the little things bring.
Finally, here’s a pic, taken from his “Goal” post where he was trying to put on weight and muscle. Fuerte, and a nice home gym.
