Re: Actual Money # savings

Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of $50k a year these days, including 401(k) and IRA contributions. A couple of years ago I had that number up to $75k a year -- all by myself -- then I took an unscheduled paycut.

Re: Actual Money # savings

Save a minimum of $59K/year between retirement and taxable accounts.

Will hopefully be the same this year with the baby on the way but we'll see

I can only be nice to one person today! Today is not your day...tomorrow doesn't look good either.
