Why I love my mini-EF

April 3rd, 2007 at 10:40 am

DH and I keep a mini EF in a savings account at a local bank. This last weekend my cousin left a message that a great aunt had died (she had been sick for a long time). I sent flowers to my aunt who had cared for her for the last 12 years, but then heard through the grapevine that they were $300.00 short of being able to purchase the headstone, so mini-EF to the rescue (was refunded with Monday's paycheck). I just felt so good to just be able to send the money---most people in my family live check to check and put everything on the credit card. This is what having your finances in order is really about, freedom to do the important things!

    perfect example that an EF isn't just about job loss and pessimism. sorry to hear about your aunt, but glad you were able to be there for your family...

    Yes, I was so happy to be able to help out...I know from when my dad died how expensive it is and money is the last thing anyone should be worrying about at such a difficult time
