Crazy Expensive Summer
I am burning through money this year!
This year has already been super expensive. I paid off my new bedroom furniture and mattress which totaled over $7,000. This was super expensive, but I don't regret one penny of it. My back used to hurt every morning when I woke up and now I get up in the morning pain free! My 15 year old mattress (I'm pretty sure I got that mattress in 2003) needed to go.
In the past 2 month I paid:
$110 for the dentist
$338 for the eye doctor (exam and new frames)
$160 for another dentist appointment
$254 for car repair services
$212 for contact lenses
Once I write it all out it is easy to see why I haven't even made half of my retirement contributions for the year. That is over $1,000 in expenses just for June and July. It is expensive to live and work in this day and age. I travel all over Florida so I need my car to stay in good repair and I will not sacrifice necessary car maintenance.
