Four weeks ago I set a goal for myself to have a 4 week flash savings challenge.  At the end of the 4 weeks, my goal was to have $3,000 in our emergency fund savings.  (We started with $611 in our savings, so we need to get $2,389 in four weeks.)

We did make a fair amount this week, which is great, but we didn’t completely accomplish our goal (yet), because we are still waiting on my husband’s $1,700 conference reimbursement check.  We are also waiting on payment for an item I sold on eBay for $309, and a flexible spending reimbursement of $260.  That is $2,269 we are waiting on!

As soon as those items come in, this challenge will be more than met, but until then, I am coming up a bit short.

However, we did add a good chunk of change to the emergency fund this week.  Here is how:

Extra Job #1:  $25

Extra Job #2:  $100

FSA Reimbursement:  $70

Extra Job #3:  $75

Anniversary Cash Gift:  $20

Extra Job #4:  $25

Total for Week Four:  $315

Total for Week Three:  $485.77

Total for Week Two:  $447.50

Total for Week One:  $254.34

New Emergency Fund Total:  $2,113.61

Starting Emergency Fund Total:  $611
