until I did the Millionaire Next Door worksheet.
http://www.money.com/money/features/seven/710.html

I save the max 10% in a 401K (S&P 500) plan with a 6% match. I also max my IRAs every year (they are in stocks). I don't have credit card debt. I also purchase a couple stocks every year. I thought I was doing ok. I was surprised to learn that I spend more and save less than the avg. American.

What am I doing wrong. How much do I need to save? What did early retirees on this board do to be able to retire early?
