56 weeks & 1/2 of Emergency Fund Done!
Thu, 01-17-2013 - 10:10am

My goal for 2013 was to build up that 1,000 emergency fund and stay out of it for day to day living expense.  So I increased my food/gas budget, started packing my lunch 4 out of 5 days.  Today I put the first $500 in the savings.  In two weeks I'll put another $500 and in another month hopefully another $200, plus I'm also putting $100 a month in the Christmas club.  Paws crossed that we don't have some big emergency and I actually have a piece of mind for a while.   I hate living paycheck to paycheck.  Make me nervous.  

56.45 weeks times $518 = $29,242.00 for the Chapter 13 BK payments.  Time is ticking by quickly.  

Have a great week!
