EF Replenishment!

April 8th, 2014 at 10:22 am

So a few months back, before I started this blog, my EF was right at the 1000 that Dave Ramsey prescribed...and then my ex happened. It's a whole big story, but the short version is that even though we're broken up, I lent him money (about 450) because he's going through a rough time. Like I usually do when I willingly give away money (which really only happens with very close friends/family), I counted the money gone. Thus, my EF is about 550. Lo and behold, the ex called today with 300 to give me. Color me surprised! I'm going to put 200 back to the EF and keep the other 100 for the circus on Friday (not that I'm going to spend 100 of course!).

Side note...has anyone seen the new $100 bills? They look so cartoonish.

    I'd put the full amount back in your EF. My thinking is that if the money was already in your EF you likely wouldn't take money out to go to the circus. Make sense? Glad you did get some of your money returned.

    I didn't explain that well. The full 300 is going back in. I just think I'll need cash for the circus, and this way I don't have to stop at a different bank since my EF and checking account are two different places. I can automatic transfer the amount from checking into my EF and save a bank trip.

    Oh, I would do that with the cash too. Great job!!
