    Default May Emergency Fund Challenge!

    Hello everyone! How is everyone doing? I am in the process of moving and going crazy. There are boxes everywhere. But, I am not going to let that stop me. I am going to the bank on my lunch and make sure I keep saving.

    Hi, I'm in to. My EF will be 200.00 I'll shoot for more. The price of gas kind of eats up the rest of the money in the budget.

    I have started depositing $50 a week toward an emergency fund. I've got $202.91 currently in there. My goal is to continue to put $50 a week toward that fund.

    I'm in!

    I had a lot of un-expected expenses this past month, I'm so ready to start fresh this month. Just started my EF, will deposit $20 monthly in there until I paid off credit-card, then will deposit $50 monthly instead. It's very small, but it's a start for me.

    I am going to put 50 dollars towards my emergency fund. 25 dollars of it is coming from my lowered grocery budget, I dont know where I am going to get the other 25 bucks, but I will find it somewhere!

    I just added $13, from my last UEI check. I usually get quite a few # of rebate checks, so I'll also add 10% from those checks, too.

    I am in. Not sure how much but I will find it. I have been wanting to do a garage sale, I have boxes in each room ready for removal but haven't had enough time because of evening activites etc. Hopefully I will accomplish this soon.

    I'm in! I will have $77 deducted from my paycheck and put into my account come May 12th, and then again on May 26th. That'll be $154 for my EF! Wow, I never thought that would happen.
