We had some water damage in the roof that we had to get fixed and we put our car in for a service… $400.00 bucks later. When did living become so expensive? Thankfully, we put aside money every month into a car fund for this exact reason so it wasn’t too bad.
It really pays to plan ahead for these sorts of things because you never know what’s around the corner. Some people may call that pessimism, you know, preparing for bad things to happen but I call it wisdom from lessons learned.
