I’ll give you a simple example. When you put money in a savings account, it earns you 1% interest. You’re ROI in this example is 1%. If you find a savings account that pays 2% interest, it would make sense to move your money to the new bank so you could get an ROI of 2%.
You should strive to get a positive ROI on all your spending. If you successfully do this the. You transform your spending into investing.

My answer is as much as you can.
