    Title, and what are you saving for?

    For those who have savings/investments but dont save regularly, just take how much you have in savings/investments right now and divide it by how long you've been saving/investing for.

    Investing with a long term view of affording a house deposit.

    Plus a safety net in the event of unemployment etc.

    A large chunk of that comes out from pre-tax salary which saves a fair bit.

    We certainly aren't starving, but equally we don't waste money in excess.

    Didn't realise you were including your pension in that. Don't check mine too often but I think its around £250 p/m going into mine with extra contributions etc. Determined to have something saved up for when I retire because god only knows what the retirement age/state pension will be like in 2060.
