September already wasn’t looking like a good month. It looks a little worse now after getting some repairs on our car. They are putting us behind about $300 so it looks like we will probably have to pull some money from our savings to pay for that. A bummer, but I really can’t complain about our car. The repair was one that was inevitable, and one may even consider it more maintenance since it’s a given that it will have to be done sooner or later. We always hope for the later, though LOL.
Sometimes I think to the future, and I think about how great it will be to have some savings set aside specifically for certain things. I can visualize an account that holds about $15,000 in it that can be used to purchase a car debt-free or used for car repairs. There is no relying on a bank or credit card to give you the funds. You call the shots, because you saved up the money.
That thought is almost as nice as my happy thought of relaxing in a hammock on a warm summer day with no bugs.
*another happy sigh*
I’m thinking that once our debt is paid off we’ll find ourselves going into extreme saving mode 🙂
