Financial Independence starts with saving,.. early and often. How quickly FI can be achieved depends on the savings available from your earnings minus your expenses, and the compounding interest of these savings. FI Toolkit allows you to enter your salary and retirement contributions that increase in future years leading up to your anticipated FI age.
The reasonable control of expenses for your particular lifestyle is a huge part of being able to continue saving or having the ability to save anything at all. You must evaluate your spending habits and answer basic questions regarding your now lifestyle vs your future lifestyle of freedom and security offered by being Financial Independent. FI Toolkit provides a means to define your current basic and discretionary expenses and project those basic expenses into future years.
Once FI is achieved, it needs to last well into retirement. Your post-FI income and your projected expenses will determine how long your nest-egg will last. FI Toolkit allows you to define your post-FI income and future discretionary expenses (among other things) which are then used in projecting total cash flow until your savings is exhausted.
