You Won’t Believe How Close We Moved To Work

Mr. Enchumbao

I work for a large investment management company helping people save for traditional retirement. During my spare time I help others save for financial independence and early retirement by writing for Enchumbao. My journey to FI began in 2012. I was in a lot of debt back then but I turned things around and became debt free a few years later. My wife and I reached financial independence in 2017 and are preparing to retire by 2020.

    Like you I had a nasty 1 hr commute each way. Granted, it was via train but boy does it make a difference to live 15 mins away from work. Now if only I could work to my company shuttle 🙂

    Oh! This post resonates with me so much. I spent about 8 years commuting a total of 3 hrs a day which led to a lot of unhappiness, expenses and time wasted of my life- 8 months of it to be exact. So when we moved, I insisted that we live closer to my husband’s work, even if that meant paying more for a house. The time wasted on the road is precious!

    Awesome news. A lot of state governments love to hit you with a transfer tax when you buy or sell that can be up to a few percentage points of the property’s purchase value. No wonder most people have to work for 30+ years.
