The Motley Fool site has an interesting article that covers two topics you may be interested in. First it includes a graph based upon Census Bureau earnings data that shows median income of by gender and various age groups so you can see where you stand. Secondly, it has a nice example and chart showing why it is so important to start saving early — even a small amount. Early savings (preferably in your twenties) have a much longer time to earn and compound into larger amounts than do larger, but later savings.
This fits nicely into one of my basic personal finance principles on savings: to put your savings on auto-pilot, start early even if just a minimum amount, and invest savings based upon your time horizon. Stay tuned as I feature other interesting articles from saving money blogs.
