Well, I pull 6% of my salary into a 401K. Other than that, the money goes toward bills and there's nothing left to put aside.

6% looks not good enough . Of course that will depend upon your estimation of fututure burden . But I do not follow what you mean by 'into a 401k'.

My husband recently got a raise and we'll be cutting off his benefits so I will be saving as much as we can each month. I haven't been able to put any into savings because we were barely making it each month. I currently have 2 savings accounts online that are earning about 5% interest! :)
