    Exclamation March emergency fund challenge

    I just put in $50.00 to our emergency fund. Shell your challenge is keeping me on track.

    How is everyone else doing?

    Well, we have an ING account for our emergency fund. Right now it gets $50 automatically put into it the first of each month. I usually use my change for the kids's savings accounts. Hmmm.....

    Can you believe that it is March already? It is a new month and time again for your deposit into your emergency fund. I have almost all my bills caught up so I am hoping to put a little more in this month. Who else is still in the emergency fund challenge? How are you doing?

    CJ I am glad that I am keeping you on track! It is a good feeling.

    Just started saving...have 27.65 in a jar and plan on saving my .25 raise...never had it--won't miss it. It will add up to about 5.00 every pay( working part time). That on top of what ever I save from grocery.

    Every little bit helps.

    Graci I read that is just what you're supposed to do. Anytime you get a raise or pay off a bill put it away. You are used to not having it so you won't miss it. WTG!

    We have been adding to ours a little here and a little there but have not routinely added to it in a while. I need to start back with adding to it each and every payday. I think I will start that this payday (next Friday). Thanks for the reminder CJ and Shell.

    Putting $25.00 into the emergency account today. With dh's raise, we've been putting the $9.00 per pay period (yup thats all it was), into the freedom account.

    Yes, I don't touch my emergency account unless a BIG emergency comes up. My idea of an emergency is illness or loss of job etc. Of course, everyone has to decide what they are comfortable with.

    I am going into the bank to deposit my $200.00 tomorrow. I'll let you know when I do it. Has anyone else added to their emergency fund? How's everyone doing?

    Unfortunately, didn't make it to the bank on Saturday, but went today during lunch and deposited $500. I'm a happy camper.
