While here in Mexico on our mini-retirement, Ms.K and I have a standard morning routine. We prep the kids for school, send them off, go jog by the tourist strip or beach on alternate days, and when we return we have a seat outside our breezy apartment with a hot cup of coffee to read up on the latest news.

Coast FIRE

Last week I came upon the term “Coast FIRE”. If you’re new to this blog, FIRE refers to the Financial Independence and Retire Early movement. It’s a pretty well known term by now and I was curious what Coast FIRE meant. While you might think that it means retiring to a coastal location :), Coast FIRE is defined as “as having enough money invested at an early enough age that you no longer need to invest any more to achieve financial independence by age 65 (or whatever age you define as a retirement age).
