I was sooo excited that on my 2nd day of my very first finance challenge, I was able to save $33 since our electric and water bill both came in under budget! That was until I got the mail. Darn medical bills.
I have to admit that I am horrible about watching our medical expenses. I almost rarely look at our EOBs. Whenever we do get a bill, I tend to just take it out of our extra money or find a way to just work it into the budget. So of course, on Day two of our savings challenge I recieved three bills in the mail.
Bill #1 - $11.05
Bill #2 - $20.00
Bill #3 - $ 3.90
Total = $34.95
Crap...I'm already -$1.95 on my second day of the challenge. Oh well, I guess I should just be grateful that I have decent insurance and that's all the bills totaled. Not that I even know what they are for. Have you ever noticed how medical bills never really tell you what they are for?! But, I digress. That'll be a topic for a different day.
