The BBC on FIRE
« on: November 03, 2018, 05:33:00 PM »
Fair introductory article on the BBC site, complete with nods to MMM and The Tightwad Gazette.

The main part I find annoying is that a huge difference in opinion between saving 25x and 55x expenses is presented but not explained or analysed.

I thought that was a pretty solid article, written in a very pleasant neutral tone.

I found this article about side hustles directly underneath it, which was equally interesting.
