Personally, I am not sure I would consider being retired well unless I can afford this and some of my other interests.

For me it would be books, rather than TV. But I don't think I'd be happily retired without them.

OTOH, I can buy a LOT of used books for $50/month or whatever cable costs these days.

I will also want to travel and dine well. But I'd rather do less of it and start earlier, rather than work longer so I could do it more often.

It helps that I like my job. But I still don't intend to work longer than I have to to finance the retirement I want. But the retirement I want includes some luxuries.
