Well, while I was in the Peace Corps I saw people struggling not to die because they had no money....

Ooohh, Peace Corps! Plan E!

Saw a lot of people in the workplace that were disgruntled because they spent more than they received and were always miffed about it.

I'd be curious to know how many 85 year-olds with a graduate degree and math skills end up without enough money.

I'm not as pessimistic as Khufu about your situation, but I think it would be wise to model out your situation using Quicken Lifetime Planner. 6% isn't an outrageous return assumption IMO. SInce you seem willing to adjust your lifestyle to fit your means you should be ok.
