Hi everyone,
I'm a newbie, looking forward to being getting to know everyone:). I'm from Ireland and been leaning the simple and frugal way both out of necessity and choice for a number of years. I'll probably spend a few days having a root, looks like a lot of information here, so i'm off to get started (oh also, went on the link for FI & downloaded the 9 steps, should be a good read!)

Hi and welcome. I'm quite new here too, mostly focussed on paring down to a simpler level of possessions right now, but also starting on the FI steps too, would be happy to discuss them as you go along if you're keen. Happy reading.

Welcome! It's always interesting and good to have a perspective from a poster outside of North America. The more the merrier.

Aroha, I'd love a wee chat about the nine steps once I get my head round it, I already done a rough calculation on DH's Real working hourly rate - He's not going to be a happy chappy;)

Hi Mentes,
Welcome to the forum. I'm living simply and frugally for the same reasons as you are. It's amazing how much money you can save by changing your habits. There are a lot of thrifty, disciplined people here with great ideas.
I look forward to reading your posts...

Hi, Mentes! I lived in Kells, County Meath; Omeath, County Lough; and Dun Laoghaire for a number of years. I sure wish I had this forum back then--I would have learned so much, received so much support from wiser and kinder heads, and maybe even would have followed the good advice I received!
