But that got me thinking about us as a family. We are affluent and do have a decent amount of money set aside in case my husband loses his job or something, like in the six figure range. But I think we're probably unusual there too. It seems like most people have trouble scraping together enough for the essentials let alone having enough saved aside for a major situation like that. I think my husband and I are just very lucky to be able to.
What about you?
