Amount of Emergency Fund and where to hold it
« on: August 04, 2015, 03:59:14 PM »
I realize that there is probably some personal preference regarding this topic, but I am wondering how various mustachians determine how much of an emergency fund they need, and where they keep the money.

I feel like I would rather either invest mine in the market, or sink it all into my student loan.  It frustrates me to just have it sitting in a savings account earning basically nothing. 

Thanks for any input!

I think this thread pretty much sums it up for individual scenarios and opinions. http://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/welcome-to-the-forum/am-i-stupid-for-not-having-an-emergency-fund/
