Anyways this means that I need $1.x million saved up to retire. I realize today that I've gotten the .x part or very close to it, but I still have the $1 part to go. $1 as in $1,000,000. I don't care what anyone says but that is still alot of $. Seems like I'm at the bottom of a very long hill. Don't mind me, I'm just going to go pinch some pennies..........
I remember your one of your first posts
. I thought I had replied to it, but I guess better judgement stopped me, or the history is too short.
I will now make a suggestion that that I thought I had made. You are going to have to spend a fairly large portion of your life working. If you don't like the job you have, find one you do like. They are out there. Get a job you like, spend a bit today and save for tomorrow.
