Comments on: Step 3: Take Into Account Replacement Costs for Big-ticket Items One couple's story of escaping 9 to 5 until 65 Wed, 20 Jul 2016 17:22:09 +0000 hourly 1 By: Bryan Sat, 15 Aug 2015 00:04:18 +0000 Young,
Thanks for stopping by!

Your story does sound similar to us. I can certainly understand how your husband should have retired, yet continues to work. We have been at this journey so long it does not seem to have an end.

These replacement costs and actual bucket list items have become an important element for our retirement plan. We have to prioritize what is important and save for those experiences we wish to have and the stuff to replace. The underlying fear of course is not having enough!

I appreciate your feedback and sharing your situation.
Take care,

This was my original retirement plan but I’m having a second thought recently. there are so many beautiful countries and so inexpensive these days, so tempting, even though I’m not adventurous. My husband should been retired in 2014, yet still working. I’m going through changes that make me tired and cranky. Retirement plan is the only thing will not turn out as I envisioned. I don’t really think about replacement costs. Like you wrote, they have different lifespan. Our retirement is mysterious even to us at this point. I like to find something that generates extra income after retired by doing something together, but My husband’s definition of retiring is doing nothing.
