Do you keep an emergency stash of money?

In talking with my friends I'm at times shocked at how badly they manage money. I have an account that I never ever access that has enough money to pay for 3 months rent and food so that I never really have to worry. Anyone else like this?

I've never been a big spender, my boss usually has to tell me to go cash my paychecks because I forget and the bank is usually closed by the time I get off work.

    I see that commercial where the girl is looking at a purse & asks her insurance agent how much her double check saved her "about $150 he replies" Done, she buys the purse.

    I thought how about saving that $150 for emergencies.

      I never understood those commercials. they just promote spending. I can't imagine spending $150 on a purse. If I see something like that, I make a note and then if I still want it the next time I go shopping I think about it then (like a new dress or something, not a purse LOL).
