We have been doing pretty good with our no-spend challenge. We have really cut back our spending both on food and regular stuff. BUT, I can't believe how many things have suddenly decided to quit working or break in the past couple weeks!
First there was the garage door which decided to go up and down randomly when you hit the button. I got a guy to come look at it and the entire thing needs to be replaced. There is the kitchen sink faucet which just started leaking (we already replaced this a few years ago, I guess when you buy cheap that's what you get), the drawer on the bottom of the stove decided to go off track when I pulled it out a week ago and now I think the little plastic guides on the drawer are totally broken. The iron started spewing water and ended up in the garbage, and then last night hubby pulled the handle to raise the foot rest on the recliner sofa and it broke off in his hand! ayayay
Two more things I just remembered...our can opener quit--and it's manual--but it quit in the middle of trying to open a can then we bought two huge, pretty heads of romaine lettuce only to be told to throw them out because of e coli. I'm sure there were more things, it's been a busy week.
So I guess when it rains it pours. Fortunately none of these things are critical (knocking on wood that something big like the furnace or roof doesn't decide to break) but it is a bit annoying that we now have so many things on our fix-it list! Ugh...
