About Me

Who am I?

  • Investing novice
  • 30ish
  • I am aiming for FI, MrsFIREShrink is just a frugal person
  • Dual-income no kids household
  • Both professionals, myself in the NHS, MrsFIREShrink as an engineer
  • Many hobbies; very important for happiness and general emotional balance. The world would be far happier if everyone had a hobby!
  • Homeowners with an anxiety-inducing mortgage, multiple cars, solidly typically middle class

What’s this blog is:

  • A long term reflective journal on my efforts towards FIRE in 20-odd years
  • A scrapbook of rants
  • Some opinions and lessons I’ve learnt along the way

What this blog isn’t:

  • Advice in any shape or form, do your own research
  • Me telling you to do anything
  • About making me money as a ‘side hustle’


For me, the goal is predominantly the FI, and not the RE. I worked hard at school and university to reach a professional position where I find fulfillment and happiness from work most days. I made my own luck. I aim to be in a position where I don’t have to work, but choose to, and my net worth maintains itself without my wage.
