<<CKs post got me wondering...what percentage of gross income are all of you saving towards retirement/FIRE?>>


I went from being essentially broke (net worth=$0) in 1979 to financial independence in 1999 by saving and investing around 50% of my after tax pay as an office clerical and blue collar worker at a utility company.
