Ah. That makes sense. The taxes thing always causes an uproar between the people who say, "How can you not include taxes when you are spending that money," and the people who really just want to know living expenses, and know that taxes will change when retired.... But I understand what you are saying. Didn't mean to be obnoxious.

Re: what % of salary do you live on

After reading these post one might conclud that what percentage of your income you live on may depend on how much you make. Bill Gates may live on less than 10% of his income, while the guy that mows lawns lives on 100%. I wonder where it begins to break?

If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.
