To help you on your journey to financial freedom I’m sharing some of the tools and spreadsheets that I have created and use. These free resources will help you to:
- plan your financial progress to early retirement
- plan your approach to living off your investments once you have retired
- motivate yourself to keep on the path you have set
- keep on target for the goals you have set
Personal Finance Statement Template
This spreadsheet is basically a net worth tracker. At its most basic it will help you to see how your net worth is growing each month. But you can also add in a target for your retirement savings and see how well you are progressing against your target.
If you are serious about retiring early then you will find this spreadsheet invaluable in helping making sure you keep on track.
Small Savings – Big Impact
This simple spreadsheet called ‘Small savings – Big Impact’ will help you to see the big impact that making small savings on a regular basis can have. Simply tap in how much you can cut out each day, week or month and let the spreadsheet do the rest. With compound growth and your statutory retirement date (UK only) built in you can see the long term impact of your choices.
You can also read the article ‘Turn small savings into a big pension pot’. This will provide further information on the power that making small changes to your spending patterns can have on your future investments.

I’m in the middle of creating a powerful retirement planning spreadsheet that helps you to work out what you will really need to save in order to retire early. This brings much more flexibility to the online planners you can find to find a retirement plan that works for you.
