With the contributions that went in today, retirement now sits at $61,175.04, bringing net worth to $115,807.92.
I had $200 left in the grocery envelope from last payday, so I transferred that to the Hog Fund, bringing it to a total of $977. Of course, we are still trying to find someone who does warranty work on the 9 month old Frigidaire freezer that isn't working right. The Hog Fund may become a new freezer fund or a freezer repair fund, because there at least seem to be people who do non-warranty repair, as opposed to warranty repair, but it might be too expensive to be worth it and cheaper to buy a new one.
If this last guy does not call us back on Monday or doesn't do the work, I'm thinking of going to D&B and pleading our case. We have bought a dishwasher, a fridge, a chest freezer, a small upright freezer, a mini-chest freezer, a washer, two dryers, a microwave, and at least one bed from them over the past 26 years. I think a couple of more items, but I don't remember for sure. We couldn't buy an upright freezer from them this time, because they didn't have any at the time we bought. We did go there first. If they had, we would have stuck with them. But we are long time customers, so can't they please make an exception in this case? It might work. They only quit doing outside warranty work a couple of months ago. I mean, it's worth a shot. It has always been important to me to support local family businesses and I have as much as I could.
