Think long term for your benefit!

5 Steps Toward Early Retirement

Retiring early is all about financial habits and willpower. If you are willing to make the necessary changes, early retirement can be achieved no matter where you are in your career now.

  1. Start today

There’s no better time to start than now. Simple as that.

  1. Pay off debt

It’s hard to start saving when you have thousands of dollars of debt looming overhead. Buckle down and make significant payments on debt to buy yourself the freedom to start investing in your retirement.

  1. Create a plan

Stick to a plan that you can contribute to monthly and track your progress. Decide how much you want to have saved up by the time you retire, then decide at what age you would like to retire. Now calculate how much you need to save each month in order to meet this goal. (You may need to consult a financial planner.)

  1. Spend wisely

Really think about your needs and limit spending on expensive items that only bring temporary satisfaction, such as a new car, boat or RV.

  1. Think long-term

Living on less will help you down the line, so learn to downsize. Every little bit helps. Bring your lunch to work, ride your bike more often or trade your expensive annual vacation for a stay-cation.

Lets make the most of this Oregon sun!!

Creative Ways to Use Sunlight

Solar panels aren’t the only way to harness the sun’s energy. Try these creative ways to use sunlight and cut energy costs while protecting the planet.

Skylights
This one might seem simple, but skylights have many hidden benefits. If you love the ambiance of natural light, a skylight provides ample illumination with privacy that windows facing your neighbors do not. This energy-efficient window allows you to ditch the light switch and save on electricity.

Solar backpack
Low battery shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the outdoors. The ECEEN Solar Backpack allows you to hike, bike and enjoy sunlight while your backpack stores energy. The ECEEN Solar Backpack utilizes high-efficiency solar cells to provide power for your phone, GPS system or MP3 player.

Outdoor clothesline
Give your dryer a rest and hang your clothes in the yard. As long as the temperature outside is above freezing and it’s sunny, your clothes will be just fine on the line. Use clothespins to make sure laundry doesn’t blow away, and give it a few hours to dry. Once clothes are dry, use a steamer or the air-tumble cycle on your machine to get any wrinkles out, while still reducing energy usage.

Mood booster
Without enough sun exposure, serotonin levels in the body can drop. Low serotonin levels can be linked to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression caused by seasonal changes in weather and sun exposure. Phototherapy, or exposure to the sun, can help boost your mood.
