We have all probably heard the important lesson of living on less that we make. Some say “Less is More” or “Living Simple” could also be names for a Minimalist Lifestyle. Myself I prefer to call it “Simple Living”. So I will call it that off and on during this podcast. I just don’t want to confuse you. LOL
Any of my friends can tell you I am so excited about helping people reach Financial Freedom and their personal goals. There is no one path to reach Financial Freedom or any goal a person has in life. We all have many paths we can take to reach them and some paths can get us there sooner than others. Just like when we drive back to see family in Minnesota one path is about 26 hour drive and another path is over 30 hours. Sometimes we try different paths for different scenery.
So, what is a Minimalist Lifestyle? It could mean different things to different people. We all could have different versions of it also. To me it is living below our means with less possessions. We have tried to keep our house simple over the years by selling or throwing away anything we haven’t used in the last few years. We are far from perfect at this but getting better. Once the boys move out we will kick it in for sure.
In the future we have discussed selling our house and moving to an apartment or possible tiny home. Doing this we feel we can live cheaper and live simple. If it is possible to live totally simple or not. Things always come up buy you could have less things come up if you have less possessions or a smaller home.
Some friends tell me that no way they want to live a Minimalist Lifestyle because they want to enjoy life when they retire. So they end up working till they are a lot older than when Darlene is planning on retiring at age 54. Darlene is going to semi retire anytime from this year to three years. She is going to work mainly till age 54 for Health Insurance.
We won’t start moving towards a Minimalist Lifestyle till the boys move out and our folks quit coming down to stay with us in the winters. I feel once we go to it, we won’t sacrifice our retirement years. Instead we will enhance it by having more time and money to do things during our Retirement years instead of working on things around the house or doing yard work.
