How well are you, economically speaking, at the moment? And let's keep it to spending money, not money you have to rent or whatever. And for kicks, say what you're gonna spend it on, if you want

Currently have $20 bucks. And all of that is going to go towards some present for my crush for her birthday a week from now. I have no idea what to get...

Right now I have 10k in my debit card. I'm just saving it up for a car or a watch or something nice. Or I'm probably gonna save it all up for college/university.

I have ~450 bucks in my savings right now. Since I don't have to pay for much at school and I live with my mom so she handles bills at home, it's pretty much all spending money but I save up over the school year to usually go to CA over the summer to visit my boyfriend. :3

Technically, right now I have $0.00. In an effort to build credit, I buy everything with my credit card, which has a low $700 limit, which is the bank's money. I spend the money I have on paying that off when I get a check every week. I spend the bank's money on food, bills, and music.

In my savings I have about ~$200, but on me I have around $80, but I'm stingy with my money so I'll probably sustain the same amount for awhile, of course that doesn't account for what I'll accrue from my job over the next x amount of time.

Got $30 of birthday money (think it's going to go towards Black 2) and whatever spare money I have in my bank account. I think about $100 or so right now? It fluctuates from week to week since I don't have a savings, just the one account. I know, bad Sam, having no savings.

I typically don't usually have more than $200 of free money at a time due to not saving properly. I don't mind, though; it'd be even better if I wasn't such a glutton and didn't buy food all the time. Think of all the money I'd save. :(

    Have about 10k. Going on holiday in 2 weeks, guess that is where most will go.

    I've got a fair amount of money I could technically spend, but not what I would call guilt-free spending. I don't let myself spend much usually, but right now I'd say I've got maybe $100-200, but even then I wouldn't want to spend that all at once.

    I'm gonna probably buy something when I go see Florence + the Machine next month. Got to get the new Mumford & Sons album. Oh, and Pokemon Black 2 (or White 2) when that comes out. And, I dunno, clothes or something.

      Don't feel too comfortable saying how much I actually have, but I've been able to save a substantial amount this year. I am saving for a down-payment on a house or flat eventually so that is what that pool of money is. I think investing in property young when you can is the best thing you can do.

      I have a pretty substantial amount saved as well, due to having a pretty good job while living at home. I'm not saying how much either though, I'm paranoid about that lol.

        Like others, I'd rather not say specifically how much money and/or disposable income I have at the present time. Lest any of you decide to rob me at gun point! But, suffice to say, I'm at my most financially comfortable state as of now. Thank you, lucrative employment! :D

          Yeahh I can't say I have very much spending money at the moment. Still searching for a job, but with school and stuff, it's hard to earn money. I survive, but the ramen noodle diet is a very real thing for me haha.

            Let me say this. This world is broke, people may have money but if the govt found a way to tax the air you breathe they would lol.

            I currently have 65 cents and looking for a job but its damn near impossible in this fuked up economy.

            I have been saving for a while. I finally bought an Iphone last week. 4s not the 5, but I have no expenses. I got a full scholarship and live at home. My parents handle the finances which allows me to save.

            Right now I have about $145 in my bank account and $30 in my wallet. Not nearly enough for me, but I should be able to start putting money away for a few short trips I want to make in the near future.

            Of course, I wouldn't be satisfied with the amount of money in my account unless it was at least 25 or 30 million, but there's a pipe dream

            I'm pretty poor right now. I won't say a quantity, but I'm not doing very well financially haha. Uni is taking a toll on my bank account and until my loan comes through that's not going to improve ;; I'm not struggling or anything, but it's definitely a concern for the future.
