Step 1: Emergency fund

December 14th, 2008 at 07:09 am

In order to stick to a budget, there must be a failsafe. The failsafe is your emergency fund. We like Dave Ramseys Total Money Makeover so these are the steps that we are following.

Step one involves saving $1,000 dollars for emergencies. We store our emergency fund in an on line account. Currently we use www.ingdirect.com; our current emergency fund is $1,000 dollars.

Onto the next step.

    Doesn't that first step feel good? I never would have thought that I'd actually be able to save 1K. But I did manage it. Now I'm working on BS2. I hope to have the credit card debt paid off my July 2009, and sooner, if possible.
