Basically living on part of one earned income for another 2 years. One SS, annuities payouts, dividends, capital gains where not reinvested and new IRA, 401k type contributions would be available so sort of new money not currently accounted for in my spreadsheet.
I might sell say a dividend paying stock that ceased paying dividends or even cds/bonds/zeros that matured during next 2 years. But not selling say 20 yr cds to get a quicker larger payback.
Depending how I did it I might have part in various accounts or sell a lot of something in one account and buy back pieces of it in other accounts over the two years.
