What should I do with the extra cash I have on hand per month? Keep to bolster savings, purchase personal insurances, or start investing small? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Because of past spending habits supporting my younger siblings, I have only had started having spare cash.

Currently serving NS, estimating around $200 savings/unutilized cash per month. Estimating ~$2.5k in savings and ~$500 in Nikko AM SG STI ETF via RSP with the only insurance I have in addition to the AVIVA SAF coverage paid for by the SAF.

I have a CDP account and currently in the process of getting a brokerage account set up.
