I'm worth $110K but took $75K. Good or Bad

So I had recently lost my job from a very small startup I had been working with as a Senior SOC Analyst making about $105K. Faced with the possibility of my source of $$ running on empty I took an offer with a small company for $75K for fulltime work with plans to hold on to that job while I keep looking for a better fit salary-wise. I made the decision as I had only one more month of money for rent/bills left. So do y'all think it was a good decision, or should I have waited a bit more to see how the other interviews I had on the pipeline would go? I guess I'm considering this my incident response Lessons Learned phase, lol.
...but seriously, I could appreciate your feedback - good or bad.
