In the defense of the OP, not knowing him or situation. I would say it is reasonable to have only saved that much money over a time period based on how much money you are making (if any) and how much you must spend on other things (like school, housing, insurance, transportation, etc). Saving is usually on the side and saving money to buy something you want and losing it sucks. pink tits or whatever your name is, if you can save a lot of money per month than i doubt you have to pay for much at all or you just have a really good job. Again, I do not know you either. Like everyone has said though, carrying it on you is silly.
