    Default Success! --- 6 mo FFEF is done!

    Whoo Hoo!

    Finally done!

    Today is pay day, thus just transferred the last of the funds needed to completely fill my 6 month EF.

    It's been a long time coming.

    I'll still be adding money to this fund, we have a car replacement needing to occur soon as well as a maternity fund to save and the land downpayment, so we will still be in BS3 for some time.

    However, I do have money in the bank to cover 6 months of no income.

    Just had to share, I had some struggles with maintaining my intensity a few months ago, and the village did help pull be back into the straight and narrow, so thank you to all as well.

    Thanks all.

    I had some real motivation issues, flat screen TV's calling my name, etc. But I powered thru it and now it's done.

    It's a cool thing for certain, but I don't feel that huge sense of accomplishment as I still have a lot of other goals to meet with savings.

    For whatever reason it was a lot more "fun" to pay off debt, than it is to save money in the bank.
