Take a look at this reverse engineered retirement savings calculator tool that shows you exactly how it works! Of course, there is the date that you have to take out to a restaurant, at about $75 a month. The local food court close to their place of work calls out to them, making them spend another about $60 a month on sandwiches, nachos and what not.
- Then, there is the occasional breakfast, maybe at iHop, adding up to about $25 a month.
- At about a $1 a pop, let’s say you have a good water drinking habit and spend about $20 a month to keep yourself hydrated.
- A couple of decent wine bottles will set you back about $30 a month, at least.
