Re: Has inflation caused you to rethink how much you need in your emergency fund?

ThriftyOver50 ·
I've definitely been wanting to add more to my emergency fund but this is the 2nd month in a row that I have not been able to add any money at all. Normally we can add $200, sometimes $300 per month. We have had hospital and other medical bills from late December through February, but we have stayed on top of them and not used any of our emergency fund, just haven't added to it. Groceries have been cut to bare bones; implementing meat as a side dish and more vegetables and beans to fill the...

Yes, I need more, but due to medical bills, I am not able to add to it right now. Maybe in May.

OK, this is bragging a bit, but I have a somewhat new Amazon Fresh in my neighborhood. Recently, they have been mailing out circulars in the local area with coupons for $20 off a purchase of $40 or more. Well, they don't have the greatest prices, but when you can get 45 to 50% off, it is a pretty good deal. They don't have everything I need to buy either, but I'm getting what I can there. The fact that a lot of my neighbors don't look at coupons so I can grab a bunch of extras from the...

I am using coupons and apps to get the most for my buck. Buying less fancy foods and going back to the foods from my childhood. Easy and cheap meals using pressure cooker and crockpot like my mom did.

My income can't keep up, as the last time I got a raise was in May 2013. Yes very true.

Seems like every day now something is getting more expensive. Just went to get my monthly haircut to find it went from $16 to $18.

Gas is through the roof. Everything and I mean everything is more and more expensive each time you go to the store. it makes you wonder when will it stop or should I say will it ever stop? It can get depressing.

We have managed to combat some of the rising cost by combining and limiting trips where possible. I'm looking into growing more of our own herbs and vegetables if possible. I had just learned to cook with more raw ingredients right before the intense price hikes, and have been bummed to have to limit my learning just because we can't afford some ingredients. At this point it's costing nearly as much to cook from home as it would be to just get take out, especially where meats are concerned...

So tell us why you are here then ? You're not helping anybody, all you're doing is ranting about what you might own and have.
