  • Yes, we do. It took a little while to get there but we are there.

  • We're trying to, but it seems like every time we have a little bit of money something breaks down right away. A couple of weeks ago it was the car, now it's the hot water heater. So who knows if we'll ever actually have a decent amount saved up in case something really bad happened.

  • We've got enough to make it a month.
    Right now we're following the Dave Ramsey baby-steps (
    We are working on getting out of debt and we should be done soon.
    Then we'll save 3 to 6 months worth of expenses. I'm super excited for that :)

  • We follow Dave Ramsey also. We have 6 months of living expenses saved and we are debt free. Baby steps......that's how you get there.
