I didn’t mean to offend you. You just wrote that it’s a way of getting to FI faster. So I understood that you plan to live frugally now and spend more later. You trade in some life quality in order to reach FI faster - that’s what I understood. And that’s precisely what dziadowac and ciulac means. I guess it makes sense to make concessions that you intend to keep for the rest of your life, also after reaching FI.
Sure, looking after the son is kind of work, especially if it’s not your kid, then there are actual people getting paid for this. I knew some girls who work here in Switzerland as nannies. They live with the family and cook for them, take the kids to and from school etc. They live and eat for free plus they receive about 1000 CHF per month of pocket money.
But it’s not a full time job, your wife has time to go get groceries and cook the dinner. I don’t have this time, I come back at 18 and usually don’t want to cook. Anyway, I would not like to eat rosol for a week. On the 7th day I would suffer while eating it .
Sure, I heard about the Austrian school of economics. But honestly, tell me, if the whole World were only Mr’s @1000000CHF, buying groceries in Lidl and reading books, what would the economy look like? There would be no Ferraris, no World Cups, etc.
IMO you cannot raise savings without somebody else raising their consumption. That’s how the modern economy works: give people cheap loans, lure them in to raise their consumption, then have them work hard to pay off their debts.
