10. Save up your emergency fund
If you’re saving up your full emergency fund, that means you’ve already saved up your mini-emergency fund (the $1,000) and you’ve paid off all your consumer debt!
Now, with all of your newfound cash flow each month, it’s time for you to put that money straight into a savings account for your FULL emergency fund.
Most experts say you should have 3-6 months’ worth of expenses in your emergency fund. So, if it costs you $3,000 a month to live, then you should have a savings account that’s somewhere between $9,000-$18,000.
It’s a lot of money, but it’s necessary if you want to be secure in your financial journey.
I admit, this isn’t the most exciting step, but when your car breaks down or when you have an unexpected medical emergency, you’ll be glad it’s there!
