Do you have in savings, a rainy day emergency fund, or even a retirement fund (If you're comfortable giving out that info)

I have about $3400 in savings and about $5000 in a Roth Ira. I only get my Roth statements every 2 or 3 months, so I am a little unesay about what may have happened to the money.

I know with the way the economy is right now, I would be on my last nerve if I hadn't started saving shit up many years back.

Yes, putting $50 a month in a retirement policy for the past 5 or 6 years constitutes rich, not spending thousands upon thousands of dollars on schooling which will acrue terrible debt.

forgot to mention i was able to put most of it back after i did get my checks, but it was quickly taken out after my car needed to be fixed twice.


right now only 2% of my check goes towards my profit sharing plan, not much but i will up it in the near future.
