Today I planned on publishing a lengthy post on why everyone should have an emergency fund and also provide an opportunity for you to enter a contest run by Jeffrey at Saving Advice. The prize is $100 via paypal to help you get started on building an emergency fund (or add to an existing one).
Unfortunately life got in the way and we were kicked right in the gut by Hurricane Sandy. We’re all ok despite some minor damage (read a little about it here) but without power I have not been online at all accept while at my day job which is only working on generator power.
Ironic that a weather related emergency caused me to delay posting about the need for an emergency fund!
Anyway just wanted to drop this post in so I don’t let my fellow contest participants down. Rest assured you can look forward to a post about emergency funds once my power is restored and I’m back to full strength!
Enter the contest below for a chance to win $100…
