How about all of you? How much are you currently saving towards retirement, as a percentage of gross? How much would you LIKE to save towards retirment as a percentage of gross? -dianakalt

Last year was about 42% IIRC, however, since I don't have a sinking fund for deferred expenses 35% may be more "honest." If I didn't buy the house, I'd be over 55%. How much would I like to save? More!
