With the economic uncertainty that the country is going through right now, Tim and I have been doing a little belt-tightening lately. Nothing major yet, just watching what we spend and being smart about the money we do spend. Trying to trim the amount I spend at the grocery store, not getting pizza for dinner, etc.
And just when I’ve gotten in the “spend less” mindframe? The muffler goes out on my car. That’s going to be several hundred dollars, at least. Ugh.
Well, at least Tim and I had already made the decision to wait as long as possible to replace my car rather than replacing it later this year. I guess I’d be even more irritated about it if we were planning to replace the car in the near future.
Anybody else feel that way – just when you start to get ahead (or feel like you’re making some headway, at least) something throws a wrench in it?
