As we move into the investment stage of our personal finance plan, we want to make sure that our financial house is is order. A fully established emergency fund, somewhere around $10,000, is a cornerstone for our financial plan.  This will give us some peace of mind when unexpected events happen, like A/C repairs for the car, and you can pay for them in cash.  Unfortunately, around 70% of Americans have no emergency fund to help out when unexpected events occur.
