I am planning to retire on about 30% of current gross income of $320,000. Got EXTREMELY lucky and have been making that much for the past few years. Before then, I made much less. Never increased my spending when I got lucky (except I did splurge and buy my dream car. Ya gotta live a little). I actually live now on about 30% of that income....have always LBMM.

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.
