Dave Ramsey: Win a Starter Emergency Fund!


Hey, Dave fans! Starting 9/9/09, Dave is giving away a starter Emergency Fund of $999. Enter for your chance to win every day through September 18th.

I have never actually seen Dave giveaway money, and I think this is a great way to spread the word about the importance of having an emergency fund.

If you are not familiar with Dave’s common sense advice, read about my experience at his live Total Money Makeover Event last March.

The Dave Ramsey online store is also offering a fantastic Labor Day Saleall of his books, CD’s and DVD’s are on sale for only $9.99 each!  Shipping is free on orders of $65 or more.

I recommend stocking up on The Total Money Makeover at this price. They make excellent wedding gifts or Christmas gifts, and read why The Happy Housewife thinks they should be required college reading material.
