The e-fund bar has been updated to reflect my 2009 savings goal.

A raise of 4% is right around the corner somewhere.

I am silently praying that Uncle Sam and his bastard child NY State have mercy on me next year.

Paying in cash feels good, walking around with change doesn't.

I am tired of hearing about the Black Friday 2 phenomenon, a.k.a the day after Christmas sale. I have no money to spend anyways, so it does not matter. ( Is it really a phenomenon if it is just made up media hype?)

Gas is now $1.84 per gallon in my area.

Looking around my apartment I realize that I started to accumulate 'stuff'. I will now have to really assess each purchase.

Good luck with your new efund goal!

smh @ Black Friday 2. I haven't seen much of ANYTHING this entire "shopping season" that I'd consider a DEAL. Like you said, it's nothing but media hype.

Happy New year, and good luck with your new e-fund goal!

Mister Ant and I did get a great deal on next year's Christmas tree after the holidays...

You can never have too much saved up.

I have $950/mo income and a $140/mo student loan garnishment.

This leaves me with no ability to save up any emergency fund.

This was really a great post, and this blog is really boosting my knowledge in the financial industry which

is a great help as I run several credit websites, making it very important to get all the up to date finance

info I can. Good luck to everyone in the new year.

P.S. I definitely recommend subscribing to this blog's feeds, they are a wealth of information.
