Have you tried this map? I use Google Maps a lot and I know that there are many mapping systems that people like to use. I am going to suggest a “map” that most of you have not thought of – mapping your cash flow. This is an important component to budgeting and it is a very important component to your retirement. If you map your cash flow to your projected expenses, you can give yourself peace of mind when planning your retirement. At the very least, you should try to map out the first three to five years of cash flow. The funds that you will use every day before you actually retire. Look at all of your known sources of retirement income, then look at your current spending to see where you might have to make changes. By mapping your cash flow, you will travel your road to retirement with fewer bumps or surprises.
