I wonder why the goal is “5x monthly income” and not “5x monthly expenses.”

Nicole is right. People don’t know their expenses but know their pay checks. For most people where lifestyle creep has income=expenses, it is a moot point and is better to use an imperfect measure that is about right than a precise measure that few people can do.
