What do you do when you used some of your emergency fund?

July 13th, 2010 at 09:11 pm

Well, I maxed out our emergency fund just as an emergency (sort of) came up. We were on vacation and the temperature was 45 degrees with the humidex - about 105 degrees farenheit. After three days of not sleeping I finally gave in and bought a $200 air conditioner which I purchased from the EF. There's a saying... if Momma ain't happy ain't nobody happy. So it really was a small emergency. In the last month I've paid off $600 on my credit card bringing it down below $4K. So should I now focus any extra cash on bring up the EF back to my target or should I keep pushing the extra cash onto the credit card? I've never had an emergency fund before and am not sure what to do. Help!
