    Post Emergency Fund Challenge-March

    It's finally March and time to make another payment into your emergency fund. Shell must be off having her baby so I thought I would start this thread. My automatic payment of $50.00 was made 3/3 and today I was able to add an additional $75.00. It feels so good to have a little security if something should happen.

    Anyone else have an update?

    I haven't made any payments as of March yet. I am tapping into my emergency fund this week. DH's job closed for a week without pay due to repairs. I am so glad we had something to fall back on.

    Hi! DH and I talked it over and this month we won't be able to deposit money into our emergency account . He has taken some time off work to help out with our new baby and there won't be a paycheque for awhile. But, don't worry, we will be at it again next month.

    YAY Shell!! Congrats on that beautiful baby!!

    My deposit showed up at the account today bringing my total to $3684.50

    I deposited my entire federal tax return in the emergency fund to prepare for my upcoming un-emplyment period. Its not actually emergency money, but they are paying MUCH more than my regular savings, so its a good place to park it for a couple of months until I need it.
