    To Danni,

    This is also a good way to save, transferring loose change

    That sounds unpleasant - what's wrong with it?

    Way to go there PlainCash4!!! Put it in before getting used to having it is a good thing. And it seems like it "rains" more and more these days. Rainy Day Fund is also a good thing. Hope you get the promotion. Good luck long distance!!!

    To date, Frugal Villagers have added:
    $1914.52
    To their Emergency Funds in 2010!


    Yes, this is a reduction from the last update. Someone used the EF to pay off debt. This is not a bad thing - because that $500 should be transferring over to the Debt Reduction total.

    Wow it's nice to see our total go up like that. I wish I could add more right now but our car is curently in the garage because the ball joint decided to brake today. I just hope I don't have to take money out of my emergency fund.

    Keep up the good work!

    Holy **** I just got the estimate for the car repairs and I almost fell on my ass. They have to change the 4 ball joint and 2 other things that I can't remember at the moment. So the total is going to be 1800$. So I have to take all of my emergency money out. On top of that we are converting from propane to natural gaz which is costing 1000.00 and my daughter's birthday in just 2 weeks. Good thing that we have plenty of food in the freezer and the pantry because otherwise we would have to buy some on credit.

    So that's -80.00 for me sorry guys!

    -80? So the other $1720 was not from the EF?
