The fatfire index

Have you ever struggled to find information on /r/fatFIRE?
What if you could more easily find threads that would interest you?
Well, you now can, by using this index as a companion guide. πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰

Here's a guide to getting started:1. Leisurely scroll through the categories below. When you see one you want to learn more about, you can click on it to access a page containing threads filed under it so far.2. In each category page, you can either collapse topics to view all topics available under that category, or expand them to view all threads available under each topic.

Quick tip -- clicking on the three dots is where you can "collapse" or "expand" the views:

Please note: this site currently works much better when viewed on a desktop/laptop browser. If you're on mobile, a workaround could be to use the "desktop view" in your mobile browser's settings. This way, you'll still see the items grouped into topics, which can help you more easily find what you're interested in. Have fun! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ˜ŠHere are the index categories we have so far:

(By the way, the "RE" in some of the categories above can refer to either being "retired early" or "recreationally employed"... or whatever you would prefer "RE" to mean. πŸ˜†)

Thank you for visiting! We hope you find what you're looking for. 😊
This project is an independent initiative, made with ❀️ and care.


As you very probably know, there have been many recurring questions asked on /r/fatFIRE. What if there was a place you could easily find discussions addressing those questions (and even their variants)? Such a place could help you learn about the cumulative inputs shared by our community members so far on the frequently asked questions on the sub. Many questions also don't necessarily have definitive answers, so at the very least, it can help to learn more about what you can take into account. πŸ˜†So, here's a new experimental section that's literally about a collection of the popular Q&A discussions so far. They are currently grouped within common themes, and in the future they may be grouped under categories like those in the main index. If you'd like to skim the catalogue of what's already available in the collection, you can choose to "collapse" the group views so you'll only see the headers (good for getting started). 😊Here's the link to the collection of FAQ threads so far:

P.S. Here's a quick reminder on how to "collapse" the group views if you'd like to only browse the headers. Clicking the three dots will reveal a menu, then click "collapse all":

P.P.S. The FAQs collection is also best when viewed on a desktop/laptop browser, because that would let you see the questions organized into groups. Like in the main index pages, a workaround for this could be to activate "desktop view" within your mobile browser, so you could try that if you're on your phone.


Dear Reader,Hi, and thank you for being here! πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ˜Š We hope this site helps you in your journey in some way. Whether or not you're already fatFI(RE), congratulations on your progress so far! πŸ˜†πŸŽ‰ It's no small feat to have overcome what you already have.For many (if not most) of us, we never really stop making new goals for ourselves, so this website project is an effort to pool together the resources that have already been generously shared on /r/fatFIRE so far. Later on, we might grow this into something more comprehensive. For the meantime, this site is mainly intended to be a place where members of our community can more easily discover and learn from what's already been shared on our subreddit so far. These include countless nuggets of wisdom, insights, experiences, stories, and resources across a broad set of relevant topics, which are being indexed to make them easier to find. πŸ₯³πŸ”ŽThere are a lot of upcoming updates and improvements planned ahead for this index, including making it more user-friendly and intuitive to use. Please do stay tuned! Your feedback and suggestions are also welcome and could in fact be very helpful, so please do write to us with them if you can spare some time for it. πŸ₯°πŸ™πŸΌThank you,
