Ugly duckling investing

I know that it's easier to cut your spending & raise your savings than it is to raise your income or to raise your investment returns.

Here's a Dollar Stretcher article putting some numbers on the speculation... although we could probably come up with more probable situations without a journalistic deadline, it's an interesting example.

The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
