$1000 Emergency fund is FUNDED!!!

I've been married for 10 and 1/2 years. We've NEVER had $1000 in savings. To my knowledge I never had $1000 in savings before marriage either. This is a step, a HUGE little baby step that I'm unbelievably proud to have accomplished.

It's funny, Dave says that most people can knock this "first" baby step out in under a month. I really truly feel that this took me 32 years.

Yippee for me, hooray! And I put another $100 in savings towards the $500 hubby cushion.
Now onto paying off the smallest credit card. I believe we owe $575 on it right now.

One little steppity step at a time. Little, little, little by little.

This is where I'd report today's lovely but this has not been such a lovely week after all. I shall not go into details but at least I can be very thankful that baby step one is done.


  1. I wish I had been able to accomplish this at 32! Congratulations.

  2. Woo hoo, that is fantastic! Keep up the great work!

  3. YAY! Congrats to you! It feels good to check that one off doesn't it? I am like you, it took me 34 years to figure it out!

  4. Congats. 1000 baby steps to that $1000 Emergency Fund, but you finally got there. Onward and Upward!

    That's really, really awesome!

  6. I am 26 but I only have 10$ on my account!
    I wanna learn how to save like u!
