Re: Money we've made versus money we have kept
Unfortunately, my percentage of saved/earned isn't that great...roughly 36%, but then again I paid a great deal of money in taxes being a single guy without a mortgage. If the stockmarket starts to perform, then I'll see that percentage creep up. Likewise, after my fiance and I get married and buy a house, the percentage should rise.
