<quote>When I was young, I began to save 20% of my income, not 2%. Unless your salary is very high, you won't be able to save enough to safely retire unless you save a significant proportion.

I should clarify... I am already saving 8% of my income to my 401k (company matches 6%+ a 1% year end company contribution)

I need to boost my e-fund and mid-term savings, that is why I am thinking of looking at treasuries or DRiP investing... I stopped a 2% Roth 401k contribution for the purpose of saving for the near/mid-term as DW & I are thinking about having a child this year or next
