It doesn't surprise me at all that a teacher could save more money then a doctor. It's not how much you make but how much you save and how early you start. A teacher could start saving at 22 years old with a lot less debt then a doctor who would start saving at maybe 28. It's not about how much money you make but how much money you can save and the discipline to not touch it and to keep saving.

Its all about discipline
