Yes, Saving Does Work!

Hi All,

Just got this message from a reader. It was inspiring so I wanted to share it with the rest of you.


I have been reading your blog. I just want to encourage you to keep saving money cause it works. When I met my wife in 1985 I was 35 and she was 32 and we were both broke. We started saving about 30% of our income. I was a process engineer, she was an insurance supervisor. We put about 1/2 in stocks and the rest in safe bonds. We both retired early – at the age of 55 and 52 about 3 years ago. Last year our porfolio was $2M and today is still worth about $1.6M even after the latest recession. We travel and enjoy life and don’t even need a pension to live on.
