I briefly looked at I-bonds but was put off by the 6-month lock in (you know Murphy's law), but it occurs to me they would be ideal for additional savings and can then be considered part of the emergency fund after 6 months.

In that case, buy half of them, wait six months, then buy the other half. Or something like that...
