Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!
Here is my frugal confession of the week:
I’ve mentioned before that my agency requires us to undergo a thorough physical exam each year at no cost to us (called medical monitoring). This is important for environmental professionals who travel to regulated entities as we may have been exposed to chemicals with short or long-term effects. But it has the added perk of being a free physical/health scan because they test for things like blood sugar, cholesterol, heart performance (EKG), xray, etc.
Well, medical monitoring occurred during my last week of employment this year. I did not have to go through it but was given the opportunity to do so. I thought it would be a great idea to go through the testing to make sure my health is optimal, especially since it was no cost to me as opposed to getting these tests done on my own. I also chose to get the tetanus vaccination (Tdap) at no cost to me. In a few months I will have the results back to ensure there has been no exposure, but also to ensure my overall health.
What is your confession of the week? I’d love to hear it!
