Today is January 1, 2016.
I am planning to retire on June 30, 2019. That is in 3.5 years. Unlike many, I have excellent retirement benefits to look forward to having at my disposal. Like many, we have a mortgage, credit cards, and student debt.
There are 182 more Mondays before my anticipated, hoped-for, retirement. 1277 days.
Our goal is simple: be rid of as much debt as possible, know exactly what the retirement programs will pay, money in the bank, 401 K contributions at the maximum, and when retired, have all except the house paid off.
This may or may not be possible, but I sure hope it is.
