We want to provide you with resources so tasks like this don’t feel quite as difficult, tips and tricks to overcome financial hurdles so you can give yourself and your family a prosperous financial future.

How to build an emergency fund fast:

  • Sell things that you find around your house. There are probably so many things that are gathering dust that you can do without. Convert things like kid’s toys, exercise equipment, and power tools into cash that you can throw into your emergency fund.


  • Take advantage of some one-time income opportunities. Do a few small jobs available around your communities like pet-sitting for friends who are on vacation, participate in focus groups, or do online surveys you get paid for. Then put all that extra income into your emergency fund.


  • Get a second job for the weekends and evenings. I know this is the last thing anybody would like to do but even if it’s just a month of doing pizza delivery it will be worth it because you can add all that extra income to your emergency fund!


  • Sit down and take a look at your current budget plan, then make a bunch of little cuts that you would probably barely notice but will really add up in the end. Some of these cuts might include turning down the thermostat just a degree or two, clipping some coupons for groceries, or canceling unnecessary services and memberships that you pay for monthly.

More Tips:

  • Don’t go out to eat so often for a while. So many Americans eat out more often than they eat in their own homes. Make your own meals for a time and brown bag all of your lunches for work.


  • To battle the rising gas prices, carpool to work and other everyday activities. Saving those dollars spent on gas can make a huge difference.


  • Save money to put towards your emergency fund by kicking some bad habits. Stop smoking, stop buying a daily Starbucks latte, or don’t go out for drinks quite so often. You might be able to save five dollars daily on that latte or eight dollars daily on that pack of cigarettes.


  • Get rid of the premium cable channels that cost a fortune or if you are feeling a bit bolder then get rid of cable altogether and rely solely on Netflix.


  • Buy used things more often than you buy new! Shopping at thrift shops instead won’t kill you. Then you can contribute a lot more cash to your emergency fund.

Do you feel more equipped to build your emergency fund now? Good, now get on with it. Those emergency situations won’t wait for you. We believe that if you can find enough motivation, you can do anything! If you are currently facing a difficult situation that you don’t yet have an emergency fund to cover then perhaps you should consider an auto title loan. Apply using our online application or by giving us a call today!
