About us…we are Tim and Amy and we retired early (in our 40s) after reducing our expenses by $6,500 a month. Most surprising isn’t what we’re missing…it’s how wonderful and rich our life is with our lower spending. We like to share what we’re doing and learning here on our channel.

Please check out our other videos. They cover house sitting, award travel/travel hacking, and our early retirement/FIRE (financially independent, retired early). And, of course, travel! Lots of our videos show the fun stuff we do on a budget around the world.
