We are a married couple, in our late 40s/early 50s, living and working in the South Lakes in the UK. Having worked for many years to provide for our 2 sons, both now grown-up, we are now starting to explore the world of frugality and simple living. Our dream is to achieve financial independence and escape from the world of full-time work by October 2019. And then start a new life, with more time spent appreciating the simple things, and more flexibility to enjoy travel, spend time abroad in the winter, visit friends and family, and create our own unique version of “early retirement”.
