n*gga u in the Air Force how u got less then a G. Don't lie don't make me u pull your clearance. Bet u one of them n*ggas who got to get the new Beamer or Benz every year got all the new clothes kicks and phone. There is no way your a.ss should have less then 20k in a regular savings period.
Don't a.ssume things over the internet, I just don't have over 1000 in my bank account but I'm not broke by any means.

All my bills are paid and my credit is good, I still have money to spend. You will be surprised how many people in the military in general can't even say that.

Edit - n*gga are you even in the military in the first place?

I kinda agree..... Even after taxes, it's kinda hard to NOT save at least $2000-3000 per month with that kind of salary!

Then again, I choose to live a simple life....

No.



I'd bet the numbers are worse than 64%

No....But I have that in my pocket right now....

If you got less than 1k in a.ssets in the bank and you're living from paycheck to paycheck, think of it this way

You're only on car transmission failure, serious illness, or emergency away from being homeless...

because they wouldn't dare go without a car or go into debt before resorting to living on the streets...

what are you supposed to do with gold and diamonds when the "end" comes? that sh*t's only valuable because some people got together and decided it was. they can be k!lled just like cash
Exactly. Everyone agrees it's valuable because it's hard to obtain, it's rare and because the world has this theory that gold can buy everything and anything.

This world is crazy like that..

Saving $50 from every paycheck goes a long way in the grand scheme of things over time. That's $100 a month $1,200 a year that you aint even feel while saving it.
I disagree. I'm in debt from old school loans and late credit card payments. I've been in situations where my car has needed new brakes (which might not cost as much as transmission failure) and I live paycheck to paycheck. Luckily I have health insurance but those monthly payments aren't easy to make.

At the end of the day, I don't have any cash to save. None. I live in LA and if an earthquake were to occur (which they have been the past couple of days), and everything falls apart, I guess I'd be considered homeless. I consider myself lucky though and I'm quite confident I can survive what we call an "end of the world" scenario.

I'm part of the 64% for now but I've been turned things around the past 3 months.

- Signed up for (Great Site)

- Opened an Ally Bank Account.

- Now putting 10-20% of each check in savings.

- Applied for 2 - 0% APR Balnance Tranfer (18 months) credit cards to speed up paying off my 1st credit card.

I'll be in great shape by the end of next year and will be opening either a CD and/or a Credit Union Account.

I see peoples bank accounts every day at work. It's actually surprisingly low to me.

You'd be surprised at how many people only ever have $20-$80 in their accounts at ALL times..
