Hubby and I have to laugh because sometimes we just wanna cry. Right when we have money saved for one thing, another crisis comes up. The money saved goes elsewhere, not for what it was intended for.
We've been saving money for furniture, garage/carport/deck and other things for our new home. We had plans to use Uncle Sam's refund and we did have some saved
However, our life doesn't go that smoothly.
Unexpected dental bills came. It is totally ridiculous the medical professionals want such a high down payment when we have insurance. Lawnmower broke. Weed eater broke.
Lawnmower and weed eater needs to be replaced soon because the grass won't stop growing. We knew the lawnmower would be needing replacing but just not this soon.
Of course, since that money slipped through our fingers, a freezer we had been watching for came on sale. Why couldn't it have come on sale a week earlier?
I think I am going to buy a lottery ticket this weekend. Maybe for once our luck will change. I'm not banking on it though.
It is just so darn frustrating.
I guess one way to look at is, at least we are able to save some and we do have more than others.
Have you saved for something but have to use the money for something else?
