You should keep a sum of emergency cash and use the remaining for other purposes such as investment.

hi guys, trying to gain some insights here if possible.

I am a 30yo male, single, only child, supporting family in certain areas like paying for insurance, utilities, internet and telephone bills and toiletries / essentials, as both parents are blue collar workers and they don't have much savings for themselves.

Till date, I have approx $30k+ of savings. I know it pales in comparison to plenty of successful people here, but I am just trying to understand how I improve to grow my savings "quickly" in the next 1 to 2 years as I am looking forward to settling down and start family.

I am currently drawing about 4+ (gross), take home pay is approx mid 3k, and I save about 50% of it after expenses. Living expenses is high as I work in CBD area at Raffles Place and meals are really expensive.

Manage to save about $1.5k on average and $2k if I am stretching my dollar that month. Rest of the expenses are on food, transport, essentials, bills and also insurance.

Really hope to settle down soon, no intention to have a child yet but would like to have a place of my own... Probably won't be considering a traditional Chinese wedding banquet as it's really expensive, just want to do a simple church wedding and honeymoon trip.

Wedding itself will cost a "bomb" with proposal ring, wedding bands, traveling and photoshoot. Another problem to come along is the renovation and furniture cost.

Would like to seek for some guru advice .

A feng shui master said that this is below average.

Hi I'm the original poster. Been working part time since secondary school, worked full time for couple of years before proceeding to take my full time degree and juggled 3 part time jobs at the same time. Hence it accumulated this much. But most of my savings went to service the uni loan :/
