I hate that table option...
the paragraph that goes on forever reads:

We have some rather large chunks going to Medical and Home improvement this year. So, plan for 2005 and beyond is to shuffle the window and medical $$ up to Retirement(taxable accounts though) and any raises will also go to investments. Target for 2005 is 35% and I think it's a reasonable goal. We'll be maxing all non-taxable accounts this year and maybe even putting an additional 2% in taxable investments.

Plus, I forgot to mention that my employer puts about 7% of my pay (about 3% overall household income) into a retirement account, too! And DH's company is putting 3% into his 401k for some special reason this year, too. Nice guys :)
