We decided that we would take our measly Emergency Fund and open an account with Amboy. It's not much, but it's a start. I plan on contributing weekly out of my husband's overtime to get it to a minimum of $1,000. This will be my first financial goal.
I know there is debate about paying off credit cards first or having a baby emergency fund. For me, it's better to have the EF. It gives me a better piece of mind so that I don't worry quite as much about finances if I know there is some money if we have a need. I think by having it in this account, we won't be so apt to dip into it to pay for everyday expenses like we would if it were in our regular savings.
