My view is people enter retirement with no idea what their expenses are. Unless you really know what you are spending where before retirement, it is hard to project your spending after retirement. So get a copy of Quicken (Delux will work just fine) and record where you spend your money. If you cannot account for more than 1 or maybe 2% of your money, try harder.
