    I agree that saving a percentage of your wages; along with a sprinkle of charity be it Church or some other cause that you are passionate about is a wonderful idea to ensure not only your retirement but also your spiritual well-being. I would like to add another caveat: Don't get caught up in the consumerism of modern day-to-day living. Be analytical as to how, when and where you spend. Do you really need the latest i-pod or would a more moderately priced MP3 do the job. An e-reader is great; but are you really going to increase your reading pleasure that much more? Have you considered the public library; after all you've already contributed to the upkeep of that institution through your tax contribution. Curb the impulse towards marketing promotions and advertising. Don't worry about keeping up with the neighbors and you'll be surprised as to how much more disposable income you can hold on to! emoticon emoticon emoticon
