Glasses, Tomatoes and the Emergency Fund

September 22nd, 2011 at 04:44 pm

Last night I get a call from my mother telling me that while my son was out at her house he lost his glasses while picking tomatoes. My initial thought was ďOh crap now I am going to have to spend a $150″

We were out looking for his glasses for a couple of hours total in the dark with flashlights but we didnít have any luck at all. I came home last night smelling like tomatoes from digging through the garden so much. This morning I decided that I would go out and look for them one more time to see if I would have any luck. Thankfully I wasnít looking for 5 minutes and I found them. I was so excited.

This got me thinking about our emergency fund and how much of a life saver it would of been had we needed to buy new glasses. You never know the importance of your emergency fund until you actually need it for something. But then again I am also glad that I didnít have to use it. My guess is that if we never had money saved then I probably would of never found the glasses and we would of been completely screwed.

    Thank heavens that you didn't find the eyeglasses hearing them crunch underfoot.

    My biggest fear was we would find the glasses by stepping on them. Thankfully they were dangling off of a plant up off the ground.

    What a relief! Too bad that the glasses weren't covered by insurance, just to be safe, but sometimes even then it leads to a spendy proposition. My wife's glasses are always expensive because of her Rx. So glad you were able to find them all right!
