    If you buy a house, your biggest bane over time will be taxes. If you could buy a cheap home in an area with low property taxes it could be less then renting, there could also be tax advantages (don’t know how England works).
    Save half where you can get to it, save the other half in a retirement account. If you can save enough over time (20 to 25 years), it becomes its own income fund allowing for splurge opportunities (along with freedom in jobs you want to work at).

    I don't think that's it. The avatar is similar, though, correct?

    Either way, good to see you.
