We had a car repair that ran over $1000.  What was your last unexpected big expense?

 I just finished paying off a deductible for repairs on our car. I got in my first accident a few months ago and had to get several thousand dollars of work done to repair it. I think the total was around 6 grand.

Emergency vet bill for close to $300.  DH was cutting burrs out of our puppys fur and he accidentally cut her.  We called the vet, who met DH at his office after hours and stitched her up.

Laptop replacement. I was standing there in shock looking at everything. Finally decided on a tablet and keyboard to go with it (the next updated one had come out so I got it discounted).

Divorce. To the tune of a $960 filing fee. Right after a car repair of $3,600

New van for me :/ the transmission went in my old van out of no where, wed been told the fluid was probably low and we needed to change all the fluid and what not in it... Did that and 4 months later it basically went out completely. The cost to get a new one and have it put in (even getting a discount cause we knew the people) wasnt worth it since I had also been getting ready to have brakes fixed and needed new tires and something else :/
New van was $6k but its soooo worth it lol. I love it, were still paying for it but its great so were willing to deal with having another payment.

Oh gosh, poor pup! And your husband must have been devastated. :(  Thank goodness your vet would see him after hours, ours won't. :(
