FireCalc after retirement

Now that you FIREd do you find yourself running FireCalc? How often?

Do you adjust your lifestyle based on FireCalcs?

Yes, but I don't run it nearly as often as I did leading up to pulling the plug - maybe only once a quarter or so.

As I said in a post yesterday, after the first year of retirement saw us underspend our target SWR, I reconfirmed our numbers in FIRECalc and loosened up a little on the purse strings. The fact that our portfolio has continued to grow even though we've been withdrawing from it for almost two years made this decision relatively easy.
