Don't want to say the exact number but it is nice when you have two incomes, no debt other than a piece of land and don't pay rent. You can quickly save up some serious cash.

re: Where do I stack up against the Money Board?


I'll put it this way:
28
~$60k net take home
5% to the 401k
I'm hoping to save $25k in the next 12 months on top of that

ETA: I do have some off-balance sheet liabilities that are growing however

Considering my SO will out earn me by about 20k her first year working, this is the best financial decision ever. Of course, that was a byproduct of her being awesome.

That is a saving of >20%.

OT baller status if better than 15%, including the match.

How much is your company matching?

I save about $2500/month total with IRA, 401k, etc. We also have about a $1000/mo travel budget so we're on vacation every other month.

Wife and I are 43/42 and we save 6400 a month for retirement. That doesn't include company match or stock options and stuff, just the $ that we set aside.

Some to 401k/Roth 401k but also a lot to an after tax account that i treat as hands-off until retirement. I increase the saving into the after tax account by $500 every January.

You've got me beat. 37/35 we do between 3-4k/mo, no 401 but IRA/529/OI's. This will be our 2nd year cracking 200k mark, but adding another mouth to feed in May. Also probably build a little bigger house in 4-5 years, probably in the 750-800k range . , but also

My breakdown. Me/Wife/kid, 26/26/9mo, net $7500/mo. Need to start saving for college, only debt is mortgage, car loan (1.9%), car lease.

Retirement (hands off):
Roth 401k: $600/month
401k Match (Pre-Tax): $600/month
Roth IRA: $300/month
Total: $1500/month
- Wife and I are also eligible for pension, currently vested. Mine is free, hers is 8% (TRSL).

Savings/Emergency:
Savings Account: $500/month
Taxable Stock Account: $500/month
Total: $1000/month

Grand Total: $2500/month.


Good exercise. I honestly didn't realize it was this high. Trying to creep it up slightly.
