    My Emergency Fund is just, well, pathetic lol But I need to turn that around. This past week, my stove died, couldn't be fixed, the ancient clunker is dead dead dead. So, will have to get a new one. Since we are doing renovations, this wasn't great timing for us. So at the end of the month I will be adding my change jar fund to my emergency fund (decided to use the monthly totals from my change jar challenge) and its anyone's guess after that how much I can for january (I'm only paid once a month - on the 28th).

    My goal is to save $6,000 and I'm sticking to it, I'll make it happen regardless of the setbacks. Dbf was like "oh great, what a time to lose a stove and we don't have the money right now to buy a new one." That's when I looked at him and said "well, that's why its important to have an EMERGENCY FUND!"

    Last week added $58.05! Combine that with $0.19 interest, and I'm now up to $558.24!

    Opening the account this past October, I thought I would have more in there by now, but Christmas hit me kinda hard, and I let my checking get up to a steady amount, neglecting the savings. I'm ready to get back on track this year.

    My son's change jar is up to over $100 and its nearly crammed full...I have a feeling that will be getting emptied into the savings account as well very soon, which will help.

    Goal for 2011 is to increase EF by $5000
    (this would mean saving approx $400 a month for 12 months.)

    Added $175 today.

    Total to date: $572.86 (pretty good for one month, above target!)

    I haven't been able to contribute this pay period. With Samson getting sick (major vet bills) and then the donkeys needing work (more major vet bills), I just haven't had the extra to put in. I will try to make up for it next pay period.

    I'm in for this challenge too! My goal is to get my EF up to $6000 this year. I just added $100 today, bringing it up to $2107.73. I'm hoping to add another $150 in February, and then a BIG chunk of money when I get our tax refund in March!
