How much do you have in your savings account?

Pls be honest ladies, I have had this discussion with my DH and we have 9000.00 in our savings account for a cushion and no debt except your home. I think we are in good shape compared to a lot of others. He thinks most people have more and are in better shape than us. Please let me know if I am wrong. Post anonymously.

  • We don't owe anything on our house, we don't owe anything on our vehicles either.
    We have 3 savings accounts, but one is for our son's college and we'll be setting up another for this baby. We have (rounding up) $25,000 in one, $15,000 in another, and $9,000 in the savings we have for our son (grandparents also put money in it monthly as well).
    We have a few CD accounts too, that we turn around and put it back in another one. I'm honestly not sure how much they are now. I haven't checked this month.

  • we dont own a house. we have about 3000 in credit debt and have about 2500 in the bank ...
    we'd have more in the bank and have our credit paid off if DH didn't have to battle for custody with his ex. ...thank god we have our priorities straight. :)
