Why Create an Emergency Fund?

Now it is easy to sit here and tell you that you need to create an emergency fund right away. It is also easy to tell you how to do it. But why should you create an emergency fund? This fund is very important, yet very few people are aware of it. So in order to help you understand things a little better, here are some reasons of why you should create an emergency fund.

Do Not Let the Emergency Take You By Surprise

  • You will not hurt your budget
  • If you have an emergency fund, then you will not have to redo your budget every time something comes up. You can still stay on that budget, but you just use a little from the fund to smooth things out. It allows you to maintain a solid budget without any major hassles.

  • Debt becomes less frequent
  • If you have a fund for emergencies, then you can use that on unforeseen events. Instead of using a credit card, like you would normally do. When you use this card, you get all the charges that come with it, and often times debt really is not eliminated at all. It just gets pushed into another avenue. You will not be using any of your precious credit to pay for this emergency.

  • Help late bills
  • If your bills are really hurting you this month, you may find one of them is late. Then you are subject to all the late fees that come with that, driving your financial situation even deeper. But with an emergency fund, you can take a bit from there to help with any problems that arise. You could even use some to make sure that the bills you have gets paid on time, thus eliminating that late fee.

  • Stress relieve
  • If you use some of that funding to help get you ahead on your bills for the month you can breath easier! You will not have to worry about anything else until the next month rolls around. Worrying goes right out the window and you can just relax.

An Emergency Fund Gives You Options

This is what is so nice about that fund. It helps you in many areas and gives you great options to combat any problems that may arise. So do not just sit around and let your problems harm you. Create an emergency fund and gain the options to help you eliminate those problems you may have.
