I just worked this out for 2003.


1) We are living in Argentina where living expenses are now very inexpensive compared to US.
2) We sold our home just over a year ago = no mortage payment
3) We have a three-year old and another one on the way


401(k) - 14%
IRA - 5%
529 Plan - 18%
Other (future house, general investment) - 20%
= Total 57%
