How many of you survivalists have at least three months salary in a savings account in case you somehow can't work?

del at one point i had 9. when i left Wachovia it went much faster than you think. i think folks need to get to at least a years worth of savings and right now that's very hard, but possible, to do.

It is probably no surprise to most here that I am somewhat of a "prepper" or a "survivalist," in that I try to be prepared for any situation that may happen...

3 years salary in a savings account. (most of it from when my parents died) 4 months worth in cash hidden @ home. (Most of it is in change... because my dad had one last joke to play... one last joke... $30k in change... )

It started burning a hole in my pocket about a year or two ago. 2 new cars, ridiculous home theater system, etc... But I regained control of myself. Whew.
