The important thing is to start and be consistent when saving or investing. Great article for pointing that out.

I said it this way: “Can you save $5 per week? And increase it by $1.25 every year?” If so, you would have $111,362 at age 65, assuming 2% interest. Waiting 2 years to retire, if you are physically able, increases the amount to $127,826.

Sounds like a lot, but you must be careful how you spend it when you retire.
