Inflation Strikes Again

It seems every time we leave the house it costs at least $100.00 make that $200.00. Today it was the pharmacy, the grocery store and the gas station. The total was $207.00. Two years ago it was usually around $100.00, I must have lost track of time.

Now I have to stay online and try to makeup for my spending spree. Well...not exactly a spending spree but you know what I mean.

I am probably one of the lucky ones considering I have health insurance where many don't, but I'll tell you with the deductible it doesn't seem like it's really helping. Sometimes I think it would cost less if I just got rid of the insurance and used the premium to pay for medical.

How much does it cost you to leave the house? Are you insurance poor? Meaning you pay so much for insurance you can't afford anything else? Let me know if that's the case. In the meantime I will be pounding the keyboard and submitting somewhere...

Thanks for stopping by!

Well, Dr. visits and hospital visits and any procedures are paid through taxes. We pay $100 per month to the insurance company who have my husband's policy through his former work. That covers most of the prescription, dental, vision, chiropractor, physio, etc. that Alberta Health Care doesn't cover. Overall, we feel very lucky with it.

Health insurance is probably a worthwhile hedge. When I was in college, I fell and broke my leg very badly, and it cost $10,000. I was 19 years old and healthy as a horse, but you never know what can happen.

Inflation is a dirty word. It is spreading like an epidemic. I used to pay Rs. 5/- a dozen for bananas and now they are Rs. 5/- each. This applies to everything else under the sun :(

What can we say about inflation??? It will never go away... Talking about poor money management...... I guess you just have to pay your money and take your chances.... God Bless You

I'd give you an answer but I promised the Gods I wouldn't curse myself financially for 40 days.
