It’s scary. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of Americans couldn’t cover a $1,000 car repair, medical bill, or other crisis out of pocket, studies show.
This is an emergency. To protect yourself, and prevent unwanted debt, you need a cash cushion of $500 to $1,000. (As Dave Ramsey says, “If you know it’s going to rain, you need a rainy day fund.”)
It won’t happen overnight. But you can save a few hundred dollars in the next few weeks—and get a chance to win $1,000—by joining It’s an Emergency!, the DailyWorth community savings challenge, below.
One of the best definitions of wealth is “being able to sleep at night.”
