Emergency Fund (from original post):

"we've managed to save $1600 (including a couple of windfalls, too) That money was supposed to be spending money for the vacation, but since it's been cancelled, I'm leaving it alone right now (and still contributing - transferred $100 to it this morning.)"

Guess I didn't make that very clear - that savings is my emergency fund - really the first time I've ever had one! Thanks for all the responses. Will definitely look into the car situation. And, I'll leave the 401k payments alone. Unfortunately, I'm a contractor and as such, I don't get a match, but I've been contributing since age 23, so I could be in a much worse situation, I guess.

Always looking at the bright side...
