All the saving I had is gone. Courts and lawyers. Crazy bitch of an ex-wife trying to screw me over and relocate with our children. Sucks.
I save money
I don't save money
We have 6 months of my husband's income in Money Market for liquid savings. We both have 401Ks, we each get an IRA CD every year for whatever was/is the contribution limits. Have some money set aside for college for the kids but the oldest 2 should get hockey scholarships (as my husband did) and the youngest we're hoping for academic scholarships. Both us are working at jobs that give us pensions. Our house is now 17 years old, and we have about 5 years of a 15 year mortgage left (we refinanced when the rates went down and we shaved 15 years off the term). We have a ton of equity in the house and it alone is worth a good amount. We don't have much other debt, we do have loans on the vehicles.
We should be fine but anything can happen. By the way, as we get older we are less "risky" in our 401K investment portfolios, ensuring that there is less of a chance that the funds will vaporize before we ever get to see them.

I don't make enough to save anything much. A few hundred perhaps.
Vast majority of my income goes to student loan payments, my car expenses (payments, insurance), and housing expenses.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
I got a little saved away. Not a lot, but a little. Plan on starting actively saving more and more once I get through one year at my job.
