Out of all you reading this, how many got $1,000 or more in the bank? I'll start it off...


No.



I'd bet the numbers are worse than 64%
being realistic that number is mos def higher than 64%. more like 89%

Fairfax, Virginia was the first county in the United States to reach a six-figure median household income, and has the second-highest median household income of any local jurisdiction in the United States after neighbor Loudoun County. Median income is $120,804 per household
$1000 is easy for people, nobody broke out here excluding immigrants and college students of course

Yup I am. I'm not talking sh*t just saying I hate when I see dudes running round buying this car that car or these clothes that clothes but ain't got sh*t to fall back on.

Are walk in the office like yo u think they will my request check for advance pay?

Yo ole can't buy a plane ticket on emergency leave a.ss n*gga.
This right here.. I never understood paying Car notes and people still living out there means buying expensive cloths with no savings, no a.ssets no nothing..

I buy all my cars out right, the closest thing I have to a note is a secure loan(best way to go if you're buying cars out right), at least with the secure loan when you put up cash as your collateral, you get back whatever you took out and it improves your credit score.. That alone has saved me..

This is a true statement that not many people realize. I remember my first year contracting overseas, I met tons of people who only had bank accounts because it was a payroll necessity. Once the contract was up, those that had no interest, or option, in an immediate resigning, went home and withdrew their money.

Wow thats absolutely fuking terrible!

To be honest i took my savings out of the bank a long time ago, i might move it to a credit union. I dont deposit a lot of money in the bank. In and out asap.

If we were to have a collapse, the banks could hold on to my money. LEGALLY. So its best to keep some on deck if you can safely.

Bottom line though most Americans not having 1k to their name is kinda dangerous. And it also means that most Americans are living pay check to pay check. If something were to happen like an emergency idk, transmission failure, boiler broken the avg American is going to put it on a credit card. And we wonder why n*ggas are in so much debt.

I dont have any outstanding debt or serious lines of credit. Learned my lesson when i was 19... SMH took me forever to pay for 3k worth of junk i bought. I was charging everything man. FUK YOU CAPITAL ONE!

This happened to me as well!

Why the fu*k are y'all keeping money in a bank? fu*k a collapse. What if the power go out in your city for a couple of weeks? Can't get money out the ATM and can't use a card at the store. People k!ll me. And if the economy does collapse what the fu*k you gone do with cash?! sh*t will be useless. Lol better have some gold and silver. And people forget about liquor. I got 20 bottles of 120 proof vodka in my closet. I can trade it or use it for fuel. Get you some bottom shelf liquor and some cigarettes lol

Anyway I'm in that boat. The wife and I got about 3700$ together. But I got fired back in December. And we got two toddlers. Smh don't have kid people. They bleed you dry. Hopefully this new business I'm venturing into will payoff. fu*k working for someone else.

The way I save is by having 10% of my bi-weekly check direct deposited in my credit union. This way I do not see the transfer and dont really know whats coming out. I hide my card from myself as well so it would have to be a real emergency for me to break it out. Just paid off student loan im in a good place, im not doing any store credit cards or not straight debit.
