Here is my frugal confession of the week:
If you’ve been reading along lately, then you know that my husband and I lost our health insurance last week. We have signed onto a new policy (more info to come), but not a dental plan.
I was due for a six-month cleaning, so even though I’ve been super busy lately (and even though my dentist was booked), I managed to find time to get the cleaning and check-up. During the checkup, the dentist found a small cavity. Since she knew I was going to lose dental insurance, she filled it on the spot (thank you!).
Our total bill for the appointment and work was an amazing $10.33 (we already met our deductible for the year). That is hundreds of dollars in preventative savings than if I had waited to go to the dentist after losing our insurance!
What is your confession of the week? I’d love to hear it!
