What are your living expenses?

Do you have a savings account?

Nothing, currently, besides paying for oil and some clothing. Yes, I have a savings account at a local bank.

Okay, honestly I'd try to guesstimate what your living expenses are going to be for the next year or so and make sure you have 6 months saved up.

Assuming you're an American afterwards I'd contribute to an IRA.
