Between retirement accounts and taxable investments, DH and I put about 46% of gross away last year. We had a few major purchases to make for the fixer-upper we bought last year, so this year I'm aiming for about 50-55%. Plus, neither one of us has particularly secure employment, so the more we put away, the better.
