I'm still here

June 2nd, 2006 at 10:08 pm

I haven't abandoned this, I just have had a lot going on. I won't go into it but let's just say I haven't had the best of luck and I've been in a major state of anxiety this week. I am glad May is over because, looking back, the entire month was just one big thing after another.

In good news, my birth control pills have gone back down in price by about $8. So roughly $96 saved over a year. I'm hoping they'll stay at that price but you never know. I've yet to find them anywhere cheaper unfortunately.

A few more charges have had to be put on my credit card thanks to the car mishaps and such setting us back but thankfully they will all be paid back very quickly.

I cashed in my coin jar to give us a bit of extra money for things like the boy's dinners at work and such. I had $10 in change without even trying.

Either tomorrow or Monday, depending on when checks clear, I'll be closing my account and opening a new one to make certain the scammy debt collector can't take any more of my money. I'll probably open up a Keep The Change savings account through B of A so that I can have my change automatically put into the bank and also get extra earnings from them matching it for the first 3 months.

I'll probably be restarting my $20 challenge from scratch due to all the money going in and out lately and us spending more than saving.

    Anything like Planned Parenthood near you?? I always got my prescriptions there when I was younger, never full price, used to do a sliding scale, not sure now.
    All physical check ups were there too..........I saved tons of money through them.

    As 1 contrary1 says planned parenthood is a great resource. In some places your country health department is along the same lines. I used to work in public health and the ladies could get their birth control for as little as two dollars month. Please check into this as their is no shame in using these services as your tax dollars is what pay for them.

    The nearest Planned Parenthood is well over an hour away unfortunately. As far as the local health department...I tried to do that when I first went on the pill but sat for over an hour and a half and never even saw a doctor. I'm planning to give it another go or trek up to the Planned Parenthood though, probably next month.
