Recognize that I am on the aggressive side - but I keep 0.5% to 2% of my annual pre-tax income in the bank. I aggressively auto-debit the rest into various investments. I borrow from a personal credit line if I have a moderate crunch and liquidate in a bigger crunch. I would argue that this will force you to save more and spend less - but it is not a strategy for everyone. I have a good job and good job prospects (strong professional network including many that have...

They "found" me the second shoe in the correct size - though the inside labels were different and the color of the leather was imperceptibly different.

Anyone else have any other success...
