    Default August Emergency Challenge!


    I can't believe it is August already! I am still going strong with this challenge. I hope there are still some other challengee's out there. Let me know how you are doing. I don't deposit my $200.00 for another two weeks but I will let you know. How is everyone else doing?

    I don't have an emergency fund, but I have started a freedom account to cover odd/non-monthly expenses such as car insurance, sewer rental and internet. I am starting over after a huge car insurance payment so I will use this thread to keep me focused.

    Congrats Shell on your large fund and dedication to it!

    I need to start over again, so I will also use this thread to help me do it. I have no further income until school starts again, so it'll be tough now that my summer job is over, but I'll figure something out.

    Thank you everyone. I think the biggest secret is to be consistent. You don't have to put a lot in just make sure you do it every month. For me, it helps not to have a debit card or cheques to this account so that I am not tempted.
