In addition, the site has all sorts of related links I encourage readers to check out as well. For instance, want to know your life expectancy? I took a doctor's handy calculator, available on "Choose to Save," answered it conservatively, and was surprised to learn I might live another 25 or so years, even a bit more if I just cut out all caffeine and sweets, but... well... hmm.
Anyway, at "Choose to Save," one might also find out a Ballpark Estimate of whether or not one will likely have the resources to retire by a chosen age, or to remain retired well (without undo financial stress) if already outside the traditional world of work. Hint: it may take more savings than you think. Yet the good news is that, with strategies cited at "Choose to Save," one might find it is easier than expected to set aside and accumulate all that is sought, again, particularly if beginning relatively young. This is not to say we are beyond redemption if the saving habit is acquired later in life. No, for us too, for I had fit into that category, there is still reason for hope.
