I always forget about that coming up in January. We have $250 extra money per month for whatever it is needed for. Prescriptions, gifts, stuff we need for the house, etc all fall into this category. I way over spent this month.
Yesterday, I filled my prescription for Duoc. It's a skin cream for Acne. I get the really painful big deep under the skin pimples and this is the only thing that has ever really kept my face clear. The cream is only good for 2 months and I can tell when it expires because I'll start to break out.
Normally, depending on the pharmacy, my prescription is between $28 - $34. Yesterday, it was $68. Luckily our prescription deductibles are only $50 per person.
I also got an oil change for my van and Mr. R got one for his car. I debated if this should come out of our extra money or our new car/car repair fund. But for now, I'm keeping it in the extra category.
I got the bill for day care in January and it was only $400. I budget for $685, so that extra money will help to pay for some of these extra expenses.
