Why I Need to Plan Ahead

My plumbing repairs are complete: new kitchen faucet, new garbage disposal, new connections under the sink, bathroom sink unclogged and one pipe replaced--all for $300! I chose to get the less expensive, 1/2 HP disposal, which saved $80. It is a little louder than the more expensive model, but not worth the extra $$. I'm really happy with the results and the price.
This repair is a good reminder for me of why I need to save for unexpected expenses. I know that with a house come repairs and upkeep expenses. Instead of ignoring that fact of life, I need to prepare for it with a house repair fund.
