You’ll have to cut back on expenses
It’s understandable to think that early retirement means spending less, in order for your money to last as long as possible. In this case, there’s definitely nothing appealing to retiring early just to make ends meet.
But, in reality, if you think things through, you might not be required to trim your expenses. After all, that’s not the idea of early retirement. The idea is to have enough money to be able to live the life that you want. If you haven’t already reached that comfortable amount, it means it’s not your time to retire just yet. The bottom line is that with enough savings, investments accounts and even side jobs, retiring early should not force you to cut back on spending at all.
