"Mr. and Mrs. 1500" — the pseudonym of husband-wife duo Carl and Mindy — are soon-to-be retirees at age 43.
After getting serious about their savings goals in January 2013, the couple committed to building a portfolio of at least $1 million in 1,500 days in order to retire early. They've since grown their net worth from $568,000 to roughly $1.45 million. You can see their initial financial standing and current net worth on their blog.
While Carl and Mindy made several smart investments, cutting costs was also crucial to achieving their goal.
