Maybe this is the millennial in me speaking, but if I have over $1-2k in my savings account, I feel like I'm doing pretty well. Do I wish I had more? Sure. But at the end of the day, I've accepted the fact that most, if not all, of my disposable income will be going toward trips and bridesmaids dresses for the foreseeable future -- and that's OK. You can imagine my shock, then, when I read a report that said I should aim to have twice my salary saved by the time I'm 35 years old. Yes, twice. Like, take the amount of money I make in an entire year and then double it. Is anyone capable of doing this? Do you ever leave your house?
Thankfully, I am not the only crazy one around here, because Twitter agrees with me. In fact, my tried and true Twitterverse has gone into a frenzy over this stat, and has even taken to sharing a few other things they may complete by age 35 if this savings account thing doesn't work out. God, I love the internet.
