Just ran up the numbers last Friday, things are down pretty significantly this year (down from ~27% previously).
 9.12% 401k
4.56% Roths

13.68% retirement savings
1.72% additional from employer

15.40% TOTAL RETIREMENT SAVINGS
Looking at our other savings amounts I think we did pretty good on limiting the expenses that we had:
14.62% for house down payment
10.29% t
