Retire Early reader Tom Oshman contributed this expanded version of the Generation-X Retirement Calculator. Tom's spreadsheet allows users to turn the information provided by the Retirement Calculator into a budget, then compare performance to ensure they remain on track to retire early. It also provides an easy way to evaluate significant changes in assumptions (marriage, buying a home, etc.), without wrecking the budget. The user instructions are included in the Excel spreadsheet. Just click on the "Instructions" tab near the bottom of the frame.
If you have any questions on using the spreadsheet, please post them on the MSN Communities Retire Early message board at: http://communities.msn.com/RetireEarlyHomePage.
