Look out the Joneses. There is a new couple in town. They moved in a few blocks away, into the smallest house on the street, with their used Subaru’s, and thrift store clothes. You’ll see them riding bikes to work, never going out, and declining to attend the neighborhood BBQ because that costs, gasp, money.
Meet Mr. and Mrs. FIRE. They work in engineering, tech, or finance. Their favorite thing to do is judge you for your lattes and a new car. Heck, they are blogging about you right now, while throwing in some Personal Capital and Bluehost links to make money off mocking your love of consumerism. Their salary is higher than you could ever dream of, but they’ll make sure to point out it’s “average”.
