    • So sorry to hear that Debbie! What can you do to cut expenses from your budget? When things pick up probably a good idea to start on an emergency fund. It will help you in the event something like this happens again. Thanks for commenting!

  1. Emergency funds are so important. I have the money direct deposited every week. It is a good idea to start one. Even if you don’t have a lot of money, start with a little bit each week. It adds up.

    • That’s good Betsy! That’s what the emergency fund is there for. You can do it! Build that emergency fund up by setting a little aside from each paycheck. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. And to avoid debts! I love saving extra every month, for those unexpected events, you know. It feels empowering to know that I don’t have to cry for help whenever we have financial emergencies at home.

  3. This is a great post and everyone should have emergency fund set aside. I didn’t and now I am paying for it. This is such amazing advice indeed. Thanks for sharing.

    • Stephanie I agree an emergency fund gives us security and reduces stress. We don’t feel like we are going from putting one fire out to the next one out too. Thanks for commenting!

    • Sinziana yes spending can be an issue. Just save say 25 or 50 each month by putting it into a separate savings account. Then pretend it doesn’t exist unless you have an emergency! Thanks for commenting.

  4. Ah I had one, but I had it in a shared account and it’s gone. I’m getting back to ground zero and then I’ll start saving again (in an account all my own).
