Min last 2 years. Was 15% before that. Been investing in some real estate. Two investments which are cash flow positive and own personal house with signify that equity now. 28 with an SO. Saving some cash now. Waiting for market to cool down before hiking back up 😡

A2, you pay income tax regardless. You pay income tax for all income regardless of 401k, IRA, or brokerage. But in a brokerage account, you ALSO pay capital gains tax - in retirement accounts you don't. That is why people benefit with retirement accounts.
Plus, in a Roth (IRA or 401k), since its post income tax, you can withdraw the principle whenever you want without penalty. (But you would be stupid to because you would lose the tax benefit of being shielded from capital gains tax)

Anything other than that will find a cleaver way to grt spent in the next 20 years (car,boat,bacation,marriage ).By saving outside i was able get my networth over milliion+,but by not contributing full i missed atleast 600k.

Max out your 401k before any other long term savings for the tax advantage. I've maxed it out (the lower of 25% of income or $18,000 or so I think) since I was 21.

Max 401k at 18k. 25. Tax savings plus compound interest make it highly advisable to max it out
