86 Days Down, 279 to Go!

Oh man, we have been spending some cash money of late! Both of our cats have been sick - Bubbles even had to have a $90.00 medication from Rite Aid on Friday. Oh geez. We've been definitely dipping into our Emergency Fund lately and are down to $2,100. 

Our new plan is to divert paying extra money on our car every month and build our fund back up, and also to start saving a targeted emergency fund for my cats of $500. As soon as we have that, we'll put an extra $100 towards our car again.

This does bring up a good point though, we've been really bad at managing where our money is going to right now. Thankfully, every month or 6 weeks we have a budget meeting where we look at our spending habits, and rework our budget according to what's going on. It even found us an extra $100 the first time we did it, it was great! I think all couples should do it, young and old, new couples and those married for 60 years. It's important.
