On this month's Q&A episode I address the following listeners' questions:

 

  1. How much money should i have in my emergency fund, if paying off my student loans is my priority, should I focus on that before I build up my emergency fund?

 

  1. How do you handle a windfall, such as a year-end bonus?

 

  1. Where should I put my savings? I’m saving  towards a downpayment for a house that we are hoping to buy within the next two or three years, should I invest this money or put it into a straight savings account?

Join my money book club! In the new year i’ll be starting a money book club with the women in my family, if you’d like to join DM me or email me!
