As someone in my late 20’s, I always forget that I need to think more about my future. I forget I’m no longer in my early 20’s and usually think have all the time in the world to get prepared. I’m going to follow the advice in this post so I can hold myself accountable to good planning for the years ahead!

    • You make a good point Shannon. While I have done one or two posts looking at how much I'll need to retire, I haven't thought a whole lot about that recently. Mainly, I think this is due to the fact that I feel pretty comfortable with the amount that I am saving, so I just figure that whatever I'm putting away will be 'enough.' But, it would probably be a lot better to have a concrete number in mind.
