I hate the latte argument as well, but if you don’t have $500 for a short-term emergency, maybe you…

Agreed. If you can’t afford both lattes and an emergency fund, choose one. And if you choose the lattes, don’t complain later if you don’t have the emergency fund when you need it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
