When the unexpected occurs, you need a plan for moving forward. Whether you already have an emergency fund or not—you need an emergency budget. Here are some tips for how to use your emergency fund or other money sources wisely so that you can maintain financial health during an uncertain period.
Put It in Writing
This is a good rule of thumb all the time, but especially when you are in crisis mode: keep a written budget. While some people can budget “in their heads” and manage money pretty well without writing anything down, you should not use these methods during an emergency. There is too much at stake, so be sure to use a formal budget, whether that means pen and paper, a spreadsheet, or one of the many online budgeting tools available at NFCC.org. Doing so will help you see exactly where your money goes and make the necessary changes to your planning and spending from month to month.
