What does your retirement budget look like? Assuming no debt. What is your expected basic minimum expenditures (core life)? And what are you budgeting for fun and luxury? My basic is around 10k a month for taxes and food and transport and utilities. Luxury and fun is another ten. Big expense in basic is property tax. Big expenditure in fun is travel. I think my basic budget is too high and I could bring it down and be very happy in a smaller home and less restaurants.

It’s wild to see the party of “families values” outraged that Pete Buttigieg took paternity leave. It’s hilarious to see that same party express outrage that he received paid leave yet sat by silently while Trump spent more than 310 days golfing on the taxpayer’s dime.
