Savings: 6.2k, ESOP: About 2k in stock/cash
Fico: 644 (as of last month, decreased CC utilization by about 11%, so waiting for an update)
Debt: Student Loans, a lot (and still won't graduate until next year) :/
Savings goal by EoY: 8.5k (hopefully I can land an internship this summer, if so, I'll update this goal).
Fico goal by EoY: The only thing hurting me is utilization, so I'll put it at 700.

A lot of times its not how much you make but how much you spend that determines savings. As i said before dw and I own a small business. Our over head is as low as possible. We have watched many competing firms come and go. Right now within 50 miles of us I know 4 firms about to go out of business. Each time one folds we take over their clients.

30yo wife is 30 as well
220k Savings from a few good years we'll never touch it, not even to pay down debts, emergency / retirement money only!
28k debt, was 64K last month
621 EQ Fico (580 last month, still waiting on util to update)
Mortgage 1675/mo - cars paid off - CC's paid down monthlybut rarely in full
House paid 185k invested 100k current appraisal 450k realistic listing price 495k
That being said, I don't mind paying the mortgage every month
If anything, I think my AT&T bill will be the cause of us going broke...
