It all depends on how much you plan on spending and a great deal on where you live. I am seeing retired family members comfortably living on less than $50,000. They own their homes. They don't have debt. They don't travel much, but mostly it is because they have no desire to travel.

Sandman is retired, and I'm a SAHM, and we live on less then $50k a year, BUT I still do not see the amounts listed in that article as reasonably feasible for retirement.
