  1. That 15-month “review” from Stop Ironing Shirts I found helpful as well.

    We’re more than a few months behind them (pulled the RE trigger in the pandemic), so it’s kind of nice to have a feel for what’s in store for us in the near future.

    Thanks for sharing that post, along with many others from the FIRE-sphere!

    1. More than happy. We’re a nice community it appears, willing to share our lessons learned (no matter how painful)
