My big worry lately is that I'm not sure if I am putting enough away for retirement. I have done the retirement calculators and but I am still not convinced that I am doing enough. A couple of years ago I saw some guidelines on what percentage of your total income should be going to housing, car, food, etc., but I can't remember what the guideline was for retirement. I figured out that we are currently putting 18.5% of our AGI into 401k's and Roth IRA's. We also have about $90/wk of after tax dollars going into an employee stock purchase plan. Does this sound like enough? My husband and I are in our mid to late 20's. - Thanks
