### Years to Financial Independence

This calculator, given your spending habits and using the 4% rule, estimates how many years you are from financial independence (aka being able to retire).

The goal of this calculator is to show that:

- The most important financial principle is to spend less than you earn and save the rest
- With enough discipline, you can easily become financially independent
- Serve as a wake up call if you are not on track with your retirement savings

This should exclude any savings toward retirement. Include everything else you spend in a month. For more accuracy try averaging your yearly spend

How much money do you save for your retirement every month?

How much money/assets have you already saved? Assets that costs you money should be excluded (like the house you live in or the car you drive)
