"Homework assignment for the day- calculate this: If you save $2 (see, it really doesn't take a $100+k/year income) per day from age 18 (hence the start early part) to age 65, invested at an average return of 12% (a bit over the historical average for the market, but not much), how much money do you have at retirement?"

About $1,704,561.84.
