    How much do you save/pay off? 6th Jul 04 at 12:32 AM
    Just realised, my suggestion on the pinned thread would probably have been better off being a separate thread...

    Here it is repeated...


    In light of the current demographic poll about the users of the site, how about another to deduce why people are here, (presuming it hasn't been done yet of course!) - Idea came from How much should I save? on the Funny Money board

    What percentage of your own (or maybe joint aswell if applicable) Gross (or net) pay goes where? (If you both save and pay debts, take the difference)
    • 100%+ on paying off debts (i.e. debts increasing sadly)
    • 80%-100% on paying off debts
    • 60%-85%
    • 40%-60%
    • 20%-40%
    • ->20%
    • 0% - Treading water - not saving, no debts
    • ->20% savings
    • 20%-40% towards savings
    • 40%-60%
    • 60%-80%
    • 80%-100%
    • 100%+ (You print your own money)
    Ranges chosen are obviously arbitrary - adjust to suit
