I don't post here much, but lurk occasionally. I thought this would be the best board to get a poll about how large an emergency fund should be. From various places, you can get a finance guru to recommend anywhere from 3 months to a year's worth of emergency fund. I wondered what you Fools had. If you are focusing on paying down debt and you haven't fully funded your E-fund, just pick the one that you are saving toward eventually.
