I haven't posted our usual menu for the week yesterday because I, honestly, don't have one. We have something going on and I'm itching to tell you all about it but it will have to wait for a couple of days :)
But today I decided to join Carla's No-Low spend challenge for January. The last few months were pretty expensive for us. We haven't received medical bills for our trip to ER yet but I know it will be an unpleasant one when it comes. I'm honestly surprised that we haven't received it yet. I thought because we don't have any insurance, they would want their money quicker but, I guess, not. We called them twice already and they still don't have any numbers for us.
But even after discounts I expect it to be anywhere between $1000 to $2000. We have the money but it will make a nice dent in our savings. And considering that our financial goal for next year was to save a certain amount, we want to have a good start on it.
I'm still working on our plan for this challenge and I doubt I will post it before the end of the year but our goal at the moment would be to save as much as we can towards this dreaded bill (ideally, at least half). I really need to crunch some numbers because some of our other bills will be higher this and next moth but I am, or at least, I will be ready. After the holidays :)
Are you cutting back in January? How was your Christmas shopping and spending so far?
