It is ok to begin with a small emergency fund.

First, open a separate account for your emergency fund.

Second, determine the appropriate amount to set aside. A common rule of thumb is at least 3-months’ worth of expenses, but your situation may call for more or less.

Third, make a plan to deposit money each month until you reach your goal. If you are able to deposit a lump sum all at once, all the better!
