The way things are going I will get to retire about 4-5 years after I'm gone.
Yeah, I’m not sure where my husband came up with his retirement figures/projections but I’m doubtful that they are based on reality. I fully anticipate that at his goal age we would both need to keep working so I’ve been looking into jobs that can be done remotely. That way we could still enjoy the RV/travel dream without emptying out our bank accounts.
At this point I’m just trying to be open to the idea and to make lifestyle changes that might help make it happen. I’ve started to tackle a little decluttering here and there. My spending has certainly decreased now that I realize just how much downsizing I’m going to have to do. I keep thinking, why bother wasting the money on a purchase if I’m just going to have to get rid of it a decade from now
it definitely makes for more deliberate and thought out purchases. It’s a big mental shift that’s for sure.
