A Time to Save and a Time to Spend
We have had AC companies in and out for most of this pouring down rainy day. The prices are ranging from $13,500.00-$10,000.00 OUCH!!!!! We still have one more company (my favorite) that has to get back to us on a price quote. You gotta do what you gotta do, having air conditioning and heat are must do's. Knowing that much money will be spent in one shot kills me. We don't keep such a large amount of money in our EF account, gonna have to dig into the long term savings :(
We have window contractors and roofers still to deal with as far as estimates then picking which one seems like a good fit for us. Once we know what we are looking to spend it will be time to load up the checking account and start writing checks. SO DEPRESSING. We figure all the other smaller ticket items that have bit the dust this month should come in just under $3,000.00. Some things can wait others can not.
We saved all this money one step at a time, day by day, month by month. I am just going to have to put a smile on my face and keep on keeping on. We will build it all back the same way as before, little by little day by day. I need chocolate. Wonder if I have a coupon for that!!
