Before an emergency:
Start your emergency fund (if you haven't already)
Ideally, your emergency fund should be enough to cover your living expenses for four to six months. In the case of job loss, lay off, or unexpected life event (such as an illness) you can use these funds to keep yourself financially afloat.
If you don't have an emergency fund yet, start today. You don't have to build an entire 6 months living expenses overnight. Start by putting in small amounts out of every paycheck into a separate account (so you won't be tempted to spend it!) After time, you'll build your emergency fund to a decent level.
