A lot of folks I talk to are baffled about how to get that first emergency fund - be it $500, $1000, or a 6-month emergency fund. Especially a 6 month emergency fund, that’s a lot of money for many people.
So if you saved one, how did you do it? Did you slow and steady wins the race put money aside? Did you hide it in a separate account? Did you use an app like Digit that automagically hides it from you?
Did you use a tax refund or a student loan refund check? Did you sell a guitar? Were you gifted money or ended up with a windfall?
Did you track progress in any way?
If you are working on saving your first emergency fund or rebuilding one, what’s your strategy? What’s your goal amount?
