Alstromeria, when I start social security in 2+ years I will be getting a total of about $1800/month income from my three sources.

If my wife keeps working till 66 which is sort of our plan she will be bringing home ~ $4,000/month, half of which will be social security and half from tax deferred investments.

Since our house and cars will be paid for we should be fine. Tennessee is a cheap state to live in. Neither one of us are big travelers anymore so it's not like we want to go to Europe or Asia or anything.

I am thinking about buying a new big screen TV for our living room. Maybe for Christmas. I want to be able to stream Netflix movies and shows to our living room TV. That will be my splurge for the year.
