Sorry you lost that money, but it's good you have what you have saved up, even if it's not as much as you'd like.  Some is always better than none and a lot of people can barely pay their bills so for you to be able to save a little is great.  You will regain what you lost x10.

Well I can't tell you that I have a 6 month emergency fund but I do have about 3 weeks worth saved up. It was quite an eye opener to me that the government went into a series of shutdowns earlier this year. My husband has a civilian job in the air force and, as I do the budgeting in the house, I made a huge effort to save up as much as I could in case of shutdowns. I'm so pleased I did. I realise we got back the furlough money as from 1st October but the sequestion that happened in July/August time, we did not get back. We lost $1,800. We will never get that back!

Great plan! I also do this, I realized how much ebay shopping I was doing earlier this year and had to control myself.  I'd have much more in that account if I'd realized it earlier.
