NYC is definitely an expensive city. It is probably easy to lower your expenses than to save an additional 3 million

Another way to look at this is how much can you afford to spend if you quit your jobs right now, this very minute. At 4% swr, $4870 a month. At 3% swr, $3650 a month.

My wife and I (ages 38 and 34) are retired and spend less than that a month traveling the world, living in the lap of luxury.

Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.
