Emergency savings 6-8 months
Wednesday, March 09, 2011
We have been hearing a lot lately about having a cushion, an emergency saving's fund. Have you thought about this? supposedly to be safe in ones own home you should ideally have at least 6-8 months of bill money/survival money stocked away. For us this would mean that if we were to do this it would require us to have 9-10k saved for a real emergency, this being medical, job loss ect. this does not mean saving for a vacation (just cause you want one) Hard work! It will take us, mind you no bumps in the road should come along at $500/month for 15 months. It is almost scary! that means no extra's no emergencies. like sick days with no pay . No extravagant presents, and most of all no more CC debt!

It might be a good idea to have a stock pile of food and water and medical supplies in case of some disaster. There may come a time when money will be worthless. You never know nowadays.
