I also actually got a refund from my school that I am transferring to my Emergency Fund next week and with my automatic Transfer on March 5, will bring my emergency fund up to $7000.
I also got a great idea from a fab blogger that I have been reading lately, Chitown over at Windy City Blues. After I reach my $10000 goal which will probably be before my wedding, I am going to start a small joint emergency fund with my fiance of $2500, in a money market account at our local credit union.
Essentially that will grow to become our emergency fund...and my savings will just be extra savings.
This brings me to a question that I have been pondering.
Should married couples have separate checking or savings, joint checking and savings, or a combination of both?
until next time, think prosperous thoughts
