What is your definition of being financially secure?
I think the definition changes as you get older, have children and assume things like a mortgage and care note. For me, it is being able to pay my bills and having some leftover to have fun with. Anything above that is just extra.
We just paid off every last bit on our credit card, got our rent and bills paid, groceries done, and we still have a decent amount left in checking (we never touch savings unless its an emergency, which hasnt happened yet), so I'd say we're secure.
