Advice on factoring inflation into retirement savings
Even assuming that inflation continues at the same moderate rate of 2.64%, the average over the past 35 years, common purchases should cost significantly more 35 years from now than they do today. For example:
2054 estimated cost
Loaf of bread
Average homeowner's insurance (year)
MoneyRates.com's spokesperson, Richard Barrington, explains that "for every dollar you want to have available to spend in terms of today's prices, you'll need $2.49 to have the same purchasing power in 35 years."

- Beginning to save early in adulthood
