All good advice here. I have a lot to consider :) I do agree w/ the logic of a large cash emergency fund. Mine (around $30k) isn't as big as what's being advocated here, but that's fixable. What I'm wondering is if there's any better place to park this cash rather than just as cash? CD ladders could work. Possibly Series-I bonds (Up to the 10k annual cap of course)?If I really wanted a solid, year long emergency fund, I'd need about $100k in there. That covers our mortgage plus living expenses. At that size, I'd basically be losing 2, 3k a year (on a good year) to inflation.
