    I am still recovering from years of overspending. My goal is to save around 3 months of living expenses in a high-yield savings account, then dollar-cost average future contributions to the emergency fund to a 40/60 stock/bond index fund at Vanguard and save/invest well over a year’s worth of living expenses in this fund. If I have a short-term emergency, I can tap the 3-month pile; if I have a longer need, I can draw down slowly from the fund. If I am fortunate enough to not need to draw from emergency fund, the money in the 40/60 fund will likely outpace inflation.

      Wow you dug up one of my very first posts, such an old article, hehe. Great job getting your finances together, I think you’ll find that once you get the ball rolling on the emergency fund and investments life becomes way less stressful. I’ve come so far myself from the time I posted this article and have a completely different attitude and motivation for life. I hope you’ll check in from time to time and let me know how it’s going. Best of luck and thanks for stopping by.
