When you first get a job, change your income, or just start thinking about where to put your money it’s easy to get lost. It’s easy to spend, but if you’re reading this you probably know it’s wise to save. Where should I put my money? How much can I spend? Do I put more in Long term or Short Term savings? All are great questions.
I was recently approached by some close friends dealing with a common healthcare situation. As a married couple expecting a baby, my friends are preparing for a huge life change and some potentially sky-high healthcare costs. After the baby, the father will be the only worker and is self-employed. In order to help him and everyone using healthcare, I have written about some ways to save on health insurance for the self-employed and also for those receiving insurance from their jobs.
Buying contact lenses is one of the best purchases I make each year. I know that a large part of my eye problems comes from the fact that I stare at a computer all day and perhaps I can work on that, but now that my eyes aren’t what they used to be, I love “putting my eyes in” every morning and enjoying 20/20 vision. Purchasing contacts, though, is not always a great experience.
