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...

You're one of the smart ones!
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 love spending money but I have enough money that I don't need to worry. At least when it comes to my spending habbits I have fairly good controll on knowing when to spend and how much I need to save.
I have the willpower to not spend everything in my bank account the only problem is I have expensive taste so I don't allow myself to buy everything I see.
I wish I had more friends like you because everyone I know understands I'm the person they need to go to if they need to borrow some cash.
I don't really have the funds for it; but this summer I've started purposely trying to "hide" away some money to be used for emergencies or things to be replaced or paying a bill or something similar.
I do have several bank accounts, which I'm good at not frivolously spending money from them. I try to save what I can.
naw I don't, wish I did though I've got one savings thing that I'm holding to buy a little boat though XP
Under optimal conditions, yes.
I think her natural self was way prettier
Hell yeah I do. My parents do as well. My dad has a duffle bag with enough money to last a year, enough guns and ammo to ward off intruders for awhile stashed in a place that no one can get to but him. Only a matter of time until the big spending machine loses control of everything and America collapses.

Yes you never know when it may come handy
I have a stash that's good for 3 months as well. I also like to collect the change from any purchases I've made and when I've accumulated a jar's worth, I'll deposit most of it into savings.
I do. I have savings that I try to never touch. And I have a vacation fund I put money in every payday. My parents raised me to save money and showed me how to save money. I think lots of people our age don't know how to really save money.
Keep up the good habit!
I'm not a big spender myself but when it comes to party times or the things that I really need to spend my money on. I'm all for it though.
i just graduated college and have only ever had part time jobs so I really don't have much; I have a savings account that I don't touch with a few hundred dollars and a retirement fund with a couple thousand. when I get a full time job, hopefully soon, I definitely will put a majority of my paychecks into savings. very smart thing to do.
Yes, some mad money for bad days
