What would you do if you missed two paychecks?
I wrote an article for Vox on:
- why emergency funds are important,
- how big they should be,
- how to get started even (especially) if it seems daunting,
- why this a weirdly American problem, and
- some hacks to keep you on track.
I hope this helps you or people you know. I also hope we see that the need for large emergency funds indicates a policy failure and that we fix it soon!
