My bonus is virtually the only real savings I accumulate other than my 401k contributions

I save but I’m kind of frugal. Many of my peers (also second years) operate under the “spend my base save my bonus” mentality but some of them are in the red month by month..

I didn’t save anything during analyst years. Usually about flat on base for housing, living and fun. Then bonus went to luxury (items + travel). In my associate years I saved most of bonus and eventually bought a flat as associate 3.
