Just a quick question my goal for my emergency fund is 5000$ which would end up being enough for 4 1/2 months of living for me and my dd. We get a garenteed 600$ a month so between that and the 5000 it would go 4 1/2 month without me having to really cut back (just what I currently add to savings) I had hoped to have the 5000 by December but with some things finally going my way it looks like I'll have it by April! So I guess my question is do you think once I have that 5000 saved a could take a little break and take my dd on a weekend trip? Two nights in a hotel, zoo, amusement park etc. Or would you keep saving? I mean I wouldn't touch the 5000 or my 500$ baby ef for it id make sure I would save other money for that. What do you guys think!
