Today I went to pull out some steaks to thaw for dinner...and hahahaha...they were thawed for sure. My fridge/freezer took a crap on me. So tonight we had to go out and buy a new one plus replace everything that was spoiled (or that I didn't trust). Egh, it just irks me that I JUST went grocery shopping yesterday. LOL
So what was your last emergency purchase, and how do you plan for it? We just always keep a set amount in our savings before investments to cover things like this. It is a relief to know that the expense is covered, but still really annoying.

Oh gosh, sorry about your freezer! Mine was nothing near that big, luckily. Just a tampon.... I have an IUD, & haven't had a period in over 2 years. But when does it choose to strike, with the heaviest flow ever? When I'm at work on the hospital floor, with 8 hours on my feet left on my shift, WHEN I'M WEARING WHITE SCRUB PANTS. No period in 2 years=no supplies in my locker. I was not a happy nurse. Luckily, we have a vending machine in the bathroom that dispenses feminine hygeine products. But yea, that was most definitely an emergency purchase!

I have a cushion for emergencies: a savings account. $100 from each paycheck goes automatically in there via direct deposit and I never withdraw unless it's the absolute last resort.
