They're started!

May 25th, 2011 at 11:02 am

My emergency fund and car fund, that is. I took TarWalker's advice - thanks! -and started small. Before I left for work this morning I put 1 into an envelope for my emergency fund and done the same for my car fund. After work hubby's mum phoned and asked me to pick up bread. She gave me the money when I came in. I put the small change into money bags that I take to the bank every few months and I put the pound coin into my emergency fund.

    Excellent! When we were starting an emergency fund, I put "found" money in it too. DH found a one-pound coin on the roadside, and got very excited!

    We started our emergency fund with change we had dumped in a jar to keep the dresser neat. From that point we dumped all our change daily into the jar and were surprised that it was full every 4-6 weeks. We had some plastic promo coin wrappers to make it easier. Some larger bank branches have coin machines. To speed the process, I took 5% off the top of net pay and transferred it to Emerg Fund, you can pick an percentage that fits your process.

    @MEC: That's a good idea. I'd be excited if I found a dollar bill Smile @snafu: I might try that Smile
