This is the best I've seen so far.

Can anyone do any better?

I don't think you can say that one person's savings rate is better than another's. There are too many variables, and while a lot of people think of LBYM as Living Below Your Means, it is important to remember that it is Living Below Your Means instead.

As with a diet, if you cut back so hard you are unhappy then you will never stick with it. Moderation in all things.
