Last week our washer started leaking, so today we got a new one delivered and installed! Owning a home comes with lots of unexpected expenses. I recommend having a house fund even after you’ve bought the house so you can be ready for these kinds of purchases. It can be for fun things too, we’ve also bought “smart home” devices with money from our house fund. Best part is, we only had to stress about what model of washer to get, NOT where the money was coming from!
