Could you retire at 43? This couple will… after saving £700k in just FOUR YEARS

15 Aug

Carl says all it takes is “smart decisions along with intelligent saving and investments”.

Writing on their blog Mr and Mrs 1500, the American husband-wife duo say they began to vigorously track their savings and cut their spending. Carl wrote: “My wife and I wrote all of our expenses in a book.

Every time we returned from shopping or paid a bill, we logged it.”

The couple set themselves a target of living off of £18,000 a year, with a $6,000 (£4,500) cushion.

They then committed to putting £1,500 a month away towards investments, which stood at $570,000(£442,000) in order to build their mega savings to $1million (£700,000) in just 1,500 days.
