Mr. Money Mustache discusses how to save money with a secret food stash AND by drying clothes more efficiently.

He and his wife studied engineering and computer science in Canada, then worked in standard tech-industry cubicle jobs in various locations throughout the late ’90s and early 2000s. Then they retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of their peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.

I can understand both sides. On the one side, the majority of people who are good with money won't have a million dollars, and probably won't until they're in their 50s or later. That doesn't mean that their advice is worthless until they've made it. On the other side, plenty of people will give unsolicited advice on money while being terrible with it. I think what it comes down to is knowing who the advice is coming from.

I knew a guy who paid something around $800 per month who said he'd never be able to retire, and I believe him.

Some of the financial problems people face can be because of poor choices, but it's hard to deny the fact that people aren't making what they did a couple generations ago, and those generations encourage and put pressure on the future generations to live up to the same lifestyle.

This isn't a very good example. It is highly doubtful that a more expensive school will guarantee you a 50% pay increase for your first job. It would have been a better example to compare saving up for school for several years vs getting a loan and starting the career job sooner.

With a Roth, you're betting that you'll have a higher tax bracket in retirement and that taxes will be higher in the future. Considering that most of us on here should have high savings ratios and that we are at a historic low for taxes, that's a bet I'll make.

Can you really claim to be "self made" while inheriting a family business? To claim the majority of Forbes richest list are self made requires a very liberal definition.

part of the problem with many financial blogs is that they all assume you're spending money that you aren't even making to get these wild numbers. Many families don't even make 40k per year to start with.

Having a mindset that $10k is a lot of money isn't the cause of making money, making a lot of money is the cause of thinking that way. Its actually about percentages of your income, if anything.

This is actually pretty terrible advice for most people. For most, it's easier to plan short term goals that build up to larger ones, or they get frustrated and give up. You have to crawl before you walk, walk before you run.

If you're at risk of ruining your retirement by helping your kids get through college you've already failed yourself. Might as well roll the dice and see if your kids will do any better than you.

I hate that you so regularly hear about successful business owners saying how amazing it is to own a successful business. What they don't tell you is how rare successful businesses are, or how much more work they can be. It's like asking lottery winners if they're glad they bought a lottery ticket. All I'm saying is, there's reasons why running a business isn't for everyone.
