There are plenty of this kind of sites on the Web. I am not a do-all-by-yourself guy, but maybe it could be of interest to some of my readers.

Hi Jack,

I'm on the same track as you after reading Diane Nahirny's book and your Money or Your Life. Diane recently published a one-chapter update to her plan, and things are still on track. (She moved to the country as well.)

Problem is, for my boyfriend spending money is a positive social experience. He loves it. Is your partner as comitted to the plan as you are?

An interesting study I read about found that a majority of frugal people share similar character traits, specifically those that match the Myers-Briggs "ISTJ" type. Reading this study made me laugh, because in fact, I'm an ISTJ.

Thanks for your blog. There are not enough people in Canada writing about simple living (yet).

Hi Anonymous,

On the Briggs type of personality, I would presumable be an ENTP type ( Maybe the reason for my interest in early retirement and frugal living can be explained by the following (taken from the site above):

"...The ENTP is the most reluctant of all types to do things in a particular manner "just because that is the way things always have been done"...."

"...ENTPs enjoy outwitting the system and use rules and regulations within the system to win the game - whatever it may be... "

Relating your question about my wife and whether she is also living frugally. It is the case, but she don't have an early retirement plan. She's some years younger than me and only have been working for a few years.

But we both agree on spending habits, we both like living in a rather small condo instead of a surburban cottage, letting the car in the parking if we can and walk instead and replacing the furniture only when needed. We enjoy a urban lifestyle, walking a lot, dining in cheap restaurants (but no fast-food!), attending intimate show in bars and meeting friends and traveling (most of the time, less than 600km from home, which let us travel by car, sleep in bed&breakfast or visiting friends, etc.)

Surprisingly, it turns out that getting satisfaction from the activites above allow us to cut elsewhere (such as furniture, use of the car, home cinema, etc.), without feeling deprivation.

Take care!
