How much do u have in savings?
« on: November 29, 2015, 08:59:12 PM »
I'm 24, married 3 years with a 2 yr old. Wife works part time, I've been working for a year already...

How much do I think I should have saved by now?

3 - 6 month expense emergency fund.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Unanswerable! How should someone know how much you should have?

You should have at least 6.24. Maybe even 5.78.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

That kinda depends whether you work at Glatt Bite or you are a lawyer, etc...

If he works at glatt bite he should have a little saved up, if hes a lawyer he should have none, Probably Only negative numbers there at age 24.

+1. Not too much student debt from learning to work in Glatt Bite. Should have some savings, until the kid gets a bit older...

Lol, of course - I still think the point was clear.  :)

You should have about 6 months of living expenses.

I find the best way to it is have a goal of when you want to have that amount and split it up by month (such as 163 a month will get you 10,000 in five years) then you should have a separate account for extras.
What I mean by that is if you want something (extra not something important) you wait until you have enough money in that account.
Money talks...mine says goodbye!
