"A million dollars is not a lot of money." - PSUengineer


Depends on where you life. In a rural county in the South it is. It also depends on how you want to live. How your picture your retirement. If you picture vacations in Europe, golfing in Miami, driving a Mercedes, then no, a million dollars isn't a lot of money.

But if you picture yourself living in a decent small modest house, driving a Nissan, vacations in Panama City Beach, Florida, while not living in a big expensive city, a million dollars can generate that kind of lifestyle.
