That $550 T.V. Actually Cost You $9,350

You think I’m Ryan Davis, but I’m actually the Grinch. And I’m here to remind you that if you spend $250 online today, you’re giving up $4,250 in retirement savings.

That’s actually a pretty fun game! By some estimates, an investment of $1,000 in a retirement account today would balloon to about $17,000 in 30 years. So, let’s extrapolate that and have some fun! These are, of course, approximations.

You could also light it on fire.

New iPhone = $17,000 in retirement savings

Samsung – 65″ Class 7 Series LED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV = $9,350 in retirement savings

Apple AirPods Max = $7,752 in retirement savings

iPad Pro = $18,700 in retirement savings

2022 RX Lexus 350 – $878,985 in retirement savings

$6 cup of coffee – $102 in retirement savings

Happy Cyber Monday!
