Looking for a spreadsheet to help introduce my SO to FIRE and show her why saving now is important

Ideally with some big ticket budget items - to buy a house how much we’d put down, how much to plan for to have a kid, etc.

Anyone have anything like this?

You may check out Personal Capital. It’s free and has a great retirement planning tool. I gave a couple of scenarios for when I retire and how much money I invest until retirement. You can add the big ticket items into the calculation.

I am new to FIRE concept but very much intrigued- to get freedom to follow my passion earlier. I am 48 and my SO is 49.
Currently assets - 1.1M in combination of 401k, Roth and trad. IRA. 120k in brokerage. We both currently max out our 401k and Roth every year and also invest 1k every month in brokerage.
30k in 529 for 1 kid - hopefully will not need much more. 4 mths expenses in cash.
I would love to retire in 7 yrs at 55. SO wants to work until 62.

Hello Fb! I'm 30 yrs old. I'm trying to figure out and plan my life to set myself up for success in the future. I wish I had known things like enrolling in a high deductible health plan at 24 when I started work so that I could enroll in a HSA for the triple tax savings or the importance of maxing out a Roth IRA or maxing out a 401K and not just to the employer match.

I wish I wasn’t adaptable. Humans aspire for a greater level of comfort and once achieved, adopt that as their new baseline. Because of this, somebody making $100k cannot simply comfortably revert back to a $50k lifestyle. The slow growth of personal wealth isn’t noticed as ideated. Instead, we are never satisfied.

Can you relate? Has your salary / net worth growth dramatically improved your quality of life?
