Doing well enough. Retired, lucky enough to have a pension. House almost paid for. Over $500K in savings and investments.
I'm completely debt free, but I do basically live paycheck to paycheck. I don't struggle to get by, but I find it very hard to save money in NYC.
I'm not living in my car.
I'm saving my money so I can leave it all to Shelley Hack after I go or her descendants if she goes first.

After a about 4 years of not so good times (unemployment, 401k withdrawals to make ends meet), I am finally doing OK. And by OK I mean that I make enough to cover my bills each month and have a little left over.
But it could all end tomorrow as my company is in the process of a reorganization. My only solace is that the overall economy is much better today than it was in 2009 and I could get a new job pretty quickly.
Okay. Things could always be better, of course. If things were perfect, nobody would have to work.
Me, I'm sitting pretty. I've got all the money I need.
Fairly good. Retired last year at age 51. Paid-for house. No debt. About $8 million in assets. Unless I live to be 105 and spend like a drunken sailor, I should be OK.
