i read an article in smart money this morning about having a reserve/emergency fund. they say depending on your situation you should have 3-12 months salary stashed away. guess i should get on that and start reading smart money more often instead of glamour. this is just one more thing about realizing i’m actually an adult that gives me stomach ulcers. i also need to figure out how to do my taxes and get on that pretty soon. in the words of ls ‘help me, i’m poor!’. but after all of this, i really will be. below is the article from smart money in case you would like to see for yourself all of the saving you should be doing.
