EF & 4 new tires

December 29th, 2006 at 10:17 pm

I got my paycheck and allotted $1000 for the EF fund. Out of the $1000 I bought 4 new tires. Which technically wasn't an emergency but I'm guessing I wouldn't feel that way broken down on the freeway with two screaming kids in carseats. I have an older Mercedes which is built like a tank and very heavy and hard on the tires. I got the best kind which were pricey but supposedly will last on that type of cars the most. $585 was the bill. $415 left now in the ef fund. I also have the Ing Direct orange savings account with $148.20 in it. I put in $5 every two weeks. I purposly do that so I won't even notice. They gave me $25 just for opening it. No strings attached.

    Good tires are worth every penny! Your safety and that of your family comes first!

    I'd count it as preventing an emergency or emergency preparation. That's how I'm counting my generator.

    This proves your EF is working - you had the money there when you needed it instead of putting it on a card. Well done! You used it for exactly what it was there for.
