I thought the purpose of an emergency bank account was FOR new kitchen toys! Sorry to hear the account will take a hit to get back up to speed. At least YOU didn't break/wear out YOU! Just be careful down steps and on throw rugs...

Thanks guys..just needed to get it off my chest. Turns out it will cost about 80bucks just to replace the ice cream maker. I don't anticipate making that much ice cream the rest of my life. Although I really liked that model because it didn't take up much space in the freezers I will probably replace it with something from a yard sale. Most of the other stuff..well, I'll just have to bite the bullet and order what I need.

So sorry to hear of all that going wrong joesfolk. Been there. Seems like we just start to get ahead and BAM something else goes. Last thing was the hot water heater .. that was a bummer because we had just dealt with the fridge and the heater. Hope I haven't jinxed myself now !!

I predict that our water heater is next. Part of me just wants to replace it now so that I don't have to deal with an emergency.

That's why we rent our water heater. It works out to a bit more than buying and paying for installation. But, they come fairly quickly for emergencies, even on holidays and that's covered by the service plan that is part of the bi-monthly fee.

I think that is a wise approach.

You can shop for a good deal and have it done at your convenience.

The new one will most likely be more energy efficient than the old one!

The time, money and aggravation you save will more than offset any loss on the remaining useful life of the old one.

You have the right idea. I wish we had done that. We talked about it but put it off .. boy did we pay dearly for that mistake !!

If you can swing it, go for it .. insurance for the future ya know !!

GLAAAAH!!!! I just went to load the dishwasher and my LAST intact visions saucepan had something dropped into it and has now broken! Sad sad day!!! I've had that pot for 20+ years dang it all. Replacing pots is wicked expensive and time consuming to find what I want. I'm not a happy girl.

Alix, just start a thread in the cookware section and you'll get more advice than you can handle.
