    Default Do you save at all?

    Skipped lunch and feeling a little bored..

    Many people say Singaporeans are asset rich but cash poor. I thought a healthy saving account should allow you to sustain for about 6 months if you are in between jobs. Nothing is certain now so do you plan for uncertainties?

    go eat your lunch then

    healthy account = sustain for 6 mths? does that include the allowance that i have to give every mth ? dunno how to plan either... no such thing as iron rice bowl nowadays... just don't overspend on unnecessary things i guess?

    Saving to sustain 6 months is too much lah.

    I only have enough to sustain for 2 days.

    That's the hard part. What is deemed "unnecessary"?

    But it looks a little fat to squeeze traffic. After all, if buy bike kena stuck in traffic behind a car, I might as well get a car.
