Been retired 11 years with pensions and SS. Currently saving/investing 15-25% a month.

I enjoy the the simple things in life, and also travel.

But I want to save more than 10-15%. Saving more = more options, and more freedom.
Thereís no need to go nuts about savings, I donít see anything wrong with savings just 10-15%, more is better obviously. Thatís what I preach to my daughters anyway.
