Sell My Car? And What About a Spreadsheet?

Hi Akaisha,

I just heard your interview with Mad Fientist, it was great.

I’m seriously considering selling my car, and that interview helped. You referred to your spreadsheets to track your daily/annual spending-do you show those anywhere? If so, please let me know. I checked in your retirement book that I bought and I could not find it-I’m interested in how you set it up and how you track them, I do not need to see your actual expenses, that’s not my business.

Thank you for your help.


Do not let Fear make your decisions for you. Risk has a price and so does security.

Hi Mark,

Good to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words about the Mad Fientist interview. It was a fun interview to do. If you are thinking of selling your car, you might also take a look at our Car Free piece.

We give a downloadable spread sheet and explain how we set it up in our book, Your Retirement Dream is Possible. It’s the only place this spreadsheet is located.

In terms of our expenses you might want to take a look at our video, Adventures in Financial Independence, where we give our average spending for over two decades.

Let me know if you have other questions. Always happy to answer them.
