At the beginning of a new year, I like to develop a target spending amount for that years wants and needs. To address the wants, I make out a "wish list" and then I go through and priortize it. In past years, I could easily pay for everything on the wish list and still save for FIRE. However, post-FIRE it is different--to do everything on this list would mean that I would need to go back to work. So for each item on my list, I have come up with a viable alternative that could fit into my current SWR. It helps me see that I truly have choices: RWOL or go back to work for a while.
