Tips to Rebuild Your Emergency Fund

Emergency situations can be emotionally and financially stressful. And while being prepared with an emergency fund can help alleviate some of the financial anxiety, many people find themselves getting stressed all over again when it comes to replenishing those funds.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you rebuild your emergency savings account:

  • Look for places in your budget where you can cut unnecessary expenses
  • Seek out coupons or sales on everyday necessities to save money
  • Using direct deposit or automatic transfers from a checking to a savings account can help you save more without feeling like you’re spending more
