Retirement Savings vs. Years Spreadsheet in Excel?
« on: February 21, 2014, 10:05:34 AM »
Hello,

I was reading MMM's Post: http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/2012/01/13/the-shockingly-simple-math-behind-early-retirement/
And he referenced a spreadsheet in open office format.

Does any have this in Excel format? or have on a google doc?

Thanks!

What exactly are you looking for the spreadsheet to do?  Just calculate your years to retirement based on savings rate?

I prefer networthify.com for that, or something like www.mustachecalc.com

(Well actually I prefer my own spreadsheets that are different than these traditional ones, but for beginners those sites are what I recommend).

But if you want that basic calculation in spreadsheet form:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Av7xbSQj85XWdDlVZHpUUEkxd2xraFI3ekc0VlVEM3c&hl=en_US#gid=0

If you're looking for something else, please clarify what you want the spreadsheet to do.  Hope that helps! :)
