Life has a funny way of kicking you when you’re down sometimes. As you’ll know from my previous posts, my husband and I recently bought a house, and it’s been expensive. We knew that going in, but several more emergencies have popped up since we bought the home and began some light remodeling.
On that list? Our air conditioner recently broke down… in 115 degree heat, in the middle of summer, in Phoenix, AZ. Do you know how hot it gets here? People literally die on the streets here in the summer. Our cats got sick and, while I drove them to the vet, they got sick again… all over my car… and not from the mouth.
Do you know how bad cat urine smells? Do you know how bad it smells in 115 degree heat? So new conditioner + vet emergency + interior detailing bill (because cat urine… all over a car I need for work…)
Saying it’s been a “rough two weeks” would be an understatement, but the worst part of it all is it’s killed our emergency savings. Our emergency savings after buying a house, dealing with unexpected expenses, and then serious emergencies that couldn’t wait, is pretty much decimated.
So what are you supposed to do when your emergency savings is destroyed because of multiple emergency expenses? There are a few ways to handle multiple emergencies without going into debt. Share your thoughts (and good wishes!) in the comments
