Not yet and I figure I won't have a decent one for a few years. Right now I have $80 a month going into a savings account. I just started this about a month ago, so it'll take time. I'm just happy I did it and feel better knowing I'm trying to make myself more financially secure.

We have to build ours back up. Dh got a job in Tallahassee so we are moving so that is taking a lot of our savings and it took 13 weeks for unemployment to kick in which we had to use our savings to pay our bills. Now that he is going back to work I need to build it back up.

We have some, but DH is looking for a car so it might get used up, which we have agreed to. We can build it again, it just seems to build slowly. DH was even asking recently why the savings account doesn't seem to change when we have around $250/month go in automatically...because we have to dip into it here and there so it seems to not change. Hopefully when I'm back to work full time in the fall (I'm a para, very little income in the summer), we will be able to save more.

Quoting elizabooks:

No not anymore. Too many emergencies have happened in the last 15 months for us to recover the fund.




Sorry you had so many emergencies come up. I hope you don't have anymore and can build an emergency fund back up.
