Do You Really Want To Retire Early?

How badly?

It is actually easy to do.

Spend less than you make, and invest wisely. The less you spend now, the earlier you can retire.

Our society seems to be based on, and NEED, consumerism. If you are not visiting the Best Buys and Leons of the world regularly, and coming out with 52 inch TVs or high end leather bound furniture, then you are not part of the solution.

On the other hand, if you do participate strongly in the consumer/debt game, then you get to work until you are 65 or 70.
