hmm i dont want to check my main account as i have splurged a bit last couple days and i have to pay rent in two days. Iam guessing after rent very little. Like probably less than $100 spare.
I have another abount that i think has about 10cents in it.
A saver account with over $1000......
A credit card that is i think over -$2500.

EDIT: i miss the days when i was working afternoon shift and doing over time and living at home at mums house or with a house mate. I was pretty cashed up back in the day.
But i dont really miss working extra hours or living with other people...

Not about to give any hint of that at all in public. Definitely a taboo subject, and a matter of personal security/privacy as well.

While I don't particularly doubt the savings crisis is real in the U.S., I wonder a bit about what those figures in the article really mean. Above a certain point, you probably don't want a whole lot of your savings in a mere savings account-- i.e. cash savings account at a bank, which these days might earn you 0.05% interest or something laughably nominal like that-- if you factor in inflation, you're actually losing value over time. While I keep a nice cushion of funds in cash savings for emergencies, the great majority of my assets are in brokerage accounts, real estate, and such. Once you have some savings, you'll need to grow it by having that money work for you, as it were-- at least to keep pace with inflation, if not exceed it.

I have roughly $700. Gotta pay $600 in 5 days for next month's rent. My next payment is at the end of the month.

Whut do? Not sure how I'm gonna survive, considering I spend around $30 a day ($5 on coffee, $5 on transport, $20 on food).

Also, I have $1000 debt in a different country which I haven't paid, no idea how much interest has accumulated either.

I don't have a savings account, but a checking account. I have cushion, though my current accommodations have me lucked out. No, I won't give specifics. Doing otherwise feels unwise.

Not enough.

I don't know if I'd call it taboo, but I do believe what I have is only my business. If family and others find out what I have then they will suddenly want to be more involved for one reason or another and I'm fine keeping everyone at arms length. Longer when it comes to what I have.

Not much. Most of my real savings are in various stocks which I won't be touching for a long time. But it's good insurance that even if I completely fail at being "successful" in the workplace, I still have a comfy retirement ahead regardless.

My way of saying "f*** the man"
