Greetings awesome FrygalVillage community, My name is Samantha, I've been reading this forum for quite some time now and finally find some courage to ask for advice.

Thanks for the quarantine and the fact that I've been working at home all this time I've managed to save up some money, not much, about 65 grand.
Could you advise on what to do with them? Buy, invest, or just save. I've been thinking to get a loan and move to another town, near the costline

As a general rule of thumb, I would say the following in order of priority.

1. Pay off debts.
2. Have an emergency fund (savings account).
3. Invest. At least part of this should be in a retirement fund. Many places of work offer matching funds, so it is good to take advantage of that. Invest in a balanced fund, it is much less risky than a handful of stocks.

I would not prioritize moving unless you really hate where you live or moving will save money in the long run.

That is quite a bit you have saved. You might want to speak with a financial advisor. They can help you make good investment choices. And they can be choices based on your circumstances, not generic advice.
