How much do you save a year from your actual paycheck?
I make 77k a year.
After tax it's about 45ish. I spend about 20 on stupid stuff and then 10 for my parents. So I put away around 15 per year. Is that enough?

      Maybe he’s not in Bay Area? Otherwise he would already qualify for food stamps 😬

    I think your math does not add. You make $45k post tax of which you spend $22.5k on stupid stuff, $4.5k for parents so that leaves you with $18k which is 40% in savings and not 15%

    No 401k or Roth? You should max the 19k in 401k first then think about what is left for other things. Been doing this since I made 60k so you make enough. Now I'm dumping near 60k a year in retirement accounts.

      Uh I guess part of the stupid stuff is 5k into outside Roth. I Max out what my company matches to so it's not too much but it's something
