If your article is aimed at people who typically have only a few hundred dollars of net cash flow every month, then I’d suggest maybe expressing that more directly :) Because the situation isn’t typical across all borrowers to have only a few hundred of net cash flow every month…..
Hi Andi, I appreciate the level of detail on your response!
I’d say it’s aimed at the general public and not a specific income. Most people are sadly living paycheck to Paycheck. The point of me speaking about the emergency fund in this regard is that it builds a safety net that will minimize the odds of them falling back into debt if unexpected costs come up.
I view an emergency fund as the first step in any financial plan, so I’ll almost always recommend putting an emergency fund in place before any other financial goal. Just my thoughts on financial priorities. People are of course very welcome to ignore that or disagree
