Millennial FIRE Bloggers To Check Out In 2019

“Millennial” is a seemingly dubious title, with the media blaming this age group as ruining just about everything from the wedding to the paper napkin industry–but we’re pretty stoked to find Millennials who are using the disruptor reputation to fuel their FIRE dreams.

The term “Millennial” refers to anyone born between 1981 and 1996–which is a huge age range and can encompass a lot of different people!

Of course, as the FIRE movement continues to grow and more diverse voices enter the space, we will likely need to add to this list and develop new ones–if there’s someone you know that should be on this list because they have a totally stellar FIRE blog geared for the Millennial crowd, please let us know!

Fiery Millennials

Blogger Gwen quit her corporate job to travel the world at the young age of 28. Her blog chronicles her adventures in freelancing, developing different income streams, and her journey to financial independence.

The City For Millennials

Thomas and his wife are currently DINK (dual income, no kids) and tackle their path to FI as urbanites with tips to share. They offer advice to help city dwellers do more, save more, and enjoy their urban digs while still being financially responsible and living life on their own terms.

The Frugalwoods

Liz and her young family live out on a homestead in Vermont having retired in their early 30s. As they meander through the woods and share their adventures in frugality, it’s an interesting peek at the post-FIRE lifestyle.

Afford Anything

You’ve probably heard of Paula from her controversial podcast interview with Suze Orman, but her spending time with the rest of her content is nothing short of illuminating and inspiring. Paula prioritizes time over stuff–you can do anything, you just can’t do everything. Thus, the name–Afford Anything.

The Green Swan

JW is 32 and blogs from the perspective of “The Green Swan is a metaphor coined to describe a deliberate approach to managing and investing money with a major effect: wealth accumulation, financial independence, and early retirement” as he journeys to FI with his wife and two children.

Millennial Revolution

Founded by two computer engineers, this blog chronicles the alternative path these FIRE walkers have been aspiring to and challenges readers to think beyond the “get a job, work until you die” mainstream mentality. They share the choices they’ve made along the way and their adventures as they travel the world.

She finds unique ways to capitalize on enjoyment without losing a lot of capital and her blog is full of engaging blog posts to get you thinking.

What Are You Optimizing For? | Chris Hutchins | Ep 423

Sometimes on the journey to FI, we ask ourselves the following; do I really need to spend money on this? Do I really have the time and resources for that? These questions may be easy to dismiss by saying no in order to stay on track with your financial goals, but by dismissing them, you could be missing out on something that is beneficial to your personal journey! This week we are joined by friend of the podcast, Chris Hutchins, to talk about the hacks for optimizing your life, the differences between cheapness and frugality, and the importance of valuing your time and what it can lead to. Saving money is an important part of achieving FI, but you should never feel so restricted that you miss out on investing your time and money in things that bring joy and value into your life. While saving is important, it’s okay to spend money. Whether it’s on a trip or investing in something new, there are ways to make it work without feeling guilt or shame. Prioritizing and valuing your time can introduce new experiences and provide happiness as well as perspective while on this journey!
