How old are you and how long have you been saving?

What investments do you have?

I posted this thread a while back when I was excited that I had $800, now I have $10,000! I'm obsessed with saving.

I'm 18 years old, and been saving for about a year and a half!

Why do I have a feeling this is going to go badly sometime down the line when somebody's bank account gets hacked?

Savings account, eh, not much. I have several grand in my 401k, which isn't terrible considering that I've been working for just over a year at my current job, which was my first out of college and first time I started a 401k.

My savings account isn't really meant for me to live off of, it's meant as more of a "Oh, I want to buy this!" fund.

I would recommend starting a savings account and try to build up 3-6 months of income in there. Use that as an emergency fund in case you lose your job or something happens. Any financial planner will tell you that.
