How much are you currently saving towards retirement, as a percentage of gross?
For 2003, I saved 38.6% of gross.
Additional percent: 6.0% approximately (put in for me by my employer)

How much would you LIKE to save towards retirement as a percentage of gross?
40% - 50% of gross.

I don't make very much, so I need to save a bigger percentage of my income. I have been thinking of trying to get more income (working on that other side rather than the expense side), but I don't know if I'll do it. I love my free time...
