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%

      Damn nice, may I ask when did you buy your house? Yoe?

    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
