In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.

http://www.epi.org/publication/retirement-in-america/#chart4

These retirement charts are SCARY.

I should really only have about $31,644 saved by these charts’ accounts because I am in the lower end of the 32-37 working age range.

So here I am freaking out over only having about $200,000 saved in my retirement accounts and for living (this is after buying my condo in cash this year), but it is nothing compared to what people have actually saved.

That’s not to say that I will just sit around idly and not save MORE money for retirement, because my goal was a home completely paid for and $1M in assets by the time I feel secure enough to consider retiring.

Check and ..working on it. 😉

H/T to Revanche for leading me to Maggie.

    I’m sorry that’s the post you found. 🙂 But yes, the state of retirement is dismal and while it makes us all feel GREAT about being so far ahead of everyone else, it also makes us want to buckle down and get literally “off the charts”! Thanks for the mention.

      I suppose so 🙂 I am happy that I did find it, it (schadenfreude) makes me feel better about myself, but still sad…
