Aussie Firebug is an anonymous blog detailing the journey to financial independence through investing in real estate, low cost index funds and Super. By investing at a young age and consistently it is possible to reach a point where your investments pay you enough money to live off. Once you get to this point you are financially independent (FI) and can retire early (RE) or do better things without the constraint of your job.

Mr Money Mustache is a retiree who now writes about how we can all live a frugal yet Badass life of leisure. He retired from real work way back in 2005 in order to start a family. This was achieved not through luck or amazing skill, but simply by living a lifestyle about 50% less expensive than most of his peers and investing the surplus in very boring conservative Vanguard index funds and a rental house or two.

This blog is very, very much worth reading if you want to retire early. Canadian so you need to ignore anything that might have tax or other legal issues in Australia, which is mostly around retirement savings and actual dollar values of anything like cars, houses and the cost of living in general.

A Guide to Spending Less While Enjoying Everything More. It sounds too good to be true. You can save money and the world, inoculate yourself against many of the ills of modern life, and enjoy everything more on both the sensual and profound levels? Preposterous!

While heavily recommended all over the internet, this book is tailored more at people leading a conventional life on a fairly average income, which can help you get your finances sorted before you move off grid but isn't as relevant when you're already there.

At The Motley Fool, their purpose is to help Australians invest — better. Their focus isn’t on the world’s billionaires… though they're of course fans of Warren Buffett’s investment style and philosophy!

Instead, they’re entirely focussed on helping regular Australian investors — people with jobs, families and who are investing in shares to secure their long-term financial futures.
