Wendy makes a really good point about massively increasing your savings rate if you can esp. if you are just starting out with investing.Think about it: If you save 2% of $100 and get say a 5% return on that, you end up with 2.10. However if you can manage to save 10%, or $1000, that additional savings completely swamps your return under any circumstances, which allows you to keep the principal safe.If you can do the 20% like wendy says you will be way ahead of the game.
