What’s your FIRE number?
« on: December 24, 2018, 07:04:46 AM »
I attend a local FIRE meetup, and recently there was a disagreement over what the average FI number might be.

I couldn’t find an existing poll like this after running a search, so I figured I’d create a poll. What’s your FI number?

Edit: After posting I realize this may be a better fit in the another board, such as General, since I’m not necessarily asking for advice here.

What’s your FIRE number?

What’s your FI number?

These are two different things that would be different answers for me of your available choices.

Curious (nosey ;-)) what the difference would be and why? Is it because you'd still be working and earning once FI but not if RE?

Yeah, I've been FI for a while but still working.

My FI and RE number is low but that's for a single person with no kids and a paid off house

Single with no kids and paid off home here as well.  FI number is pretty low, but I have a lot of discretionary built in to my FIRE number.
