  • Is this savings and checking? right now just after paying bills we have about $2000. Our savings are mostly in investments that I can't get to.
    If you have to supplement your income you need to pay off some of those bills with that $80,000

  • $25,000 cash - $10,000 in investments and $10,000 available credit on with my credit union. Bills are paid in full - we are doing ok, especially given this economy, but we feel we need more in savings.

  • enough for the bills but not nearly as much as you have.

    WOW...if I had 80,000 I would probably be able to relax and see my husband take a day off work.

  • We have $450,000 in 401K and other investments. It took 33 years of work to get that. As far as just the bank, not enough - never enough. But, retirement is just around the corner. We can almost smell it. My husband has 7 years and I have 10.

  • We have 1 million in retirement accounts and investment accounts. In our savings we have about 75k. In checking about 12k after paying bills. Our bills are less than 1k a month since the house and are cars are all paid off. We have another emergency checking with 25k in it.
