    Default Hey! What happened to all the people who joined the Emergency Fund?

    OK what has happened to all the people that have joined the emergency fund challenge the last couple of months? You haven't given up have you?

    Remember the key to making it work is to save each and every month even if it is just a little bit.

    Did I officially join this and forget? Hmmm...Well, I get paid twice a month, on the 15th and the 30th. On the 15th I put in $175 and on the the 30th I put in $125 into my emergency fund. This this hasn't changed so far and I have $550. I did have to dip into it last month though because I had an appointment with the allergist. I'm hoping I won't have to dig into it for the dentist coming ups soon, but if I need it it's there and NOT using the credit card!!!!!! DH contributes to our main savings each week without access to the account unless you go into the bank to withdraw it. We will be moving soon and so we are trying to earn extra, here and there, to save as much as possible!!!

    No I am still here all I am able to put in now and then is small amounts of change sometimes $1.00 or more.
    We don't even have enough money yet for an emergency fund to start in the bank.
