How much should I have at my age?

How much should I have at my age?
This episode was sparked from articles we've recently found like this: Yahoo Finance - 'How much the average Aussie has in savings' and Finder - 'How much money should I have?'. The question then becomes, how do I compare? Of course, we live by the motto 'comparison is the thief of joy', but more importantly, we decide to dig into the idea of the median - is that a more useful measure when you want to stack yourself beside your peers? (Ps. Yes is the answer).
