$1.40

2017 is bringing me great reductions in spending.  It's so exciting ... like getting a raise and a bonus.


May 1 begins Medicare coverage.  Part B from the Government is $134 or thereabouts.  My supplemental will be $88 (including prescriptions).  Last year I paid $628 PER MONTH for Kaiser so I will be spending about $400 less each month.  And my new right knee won't be thousands of dollars out of pocket (although yesterday I was will to pay the whole thing just to stop the pain)

Yesterday's mail also brought me unexpected good news.  My car payments have ended!  I thought I had a four year (don't worry, ZERO interest) loan but turns out it was just three!  Yippee skippee that's a nice chunk of change as well.

My "income" is so low that I do not owe any taxes.  While I'm not sure that is such good news, I'm taking it as such.

And let me not forget to mention my check from Honda Financial Services.  Yep.  $1.40 overpayment on the car loan.  Heading to the bank first thing on Monday!

  1. Wow, you've got lots of reasons to be happy about your financial situation right now. Not having car or mortgage payments is HUGE!

    When are you going to get that knee replaced?

  3. We love Medicare--congratulations on joining the group.
    My income is non-existent so I don't even have to file a tax return.
    Don't spend that #1.47 all in one place!!!!!!

    1. I'll probably never "run" but it would be great to walk without pain. Or walk FAST!

      Sweet dreams is not having to be concerned about money ten years from now! And have enough for the grandkids to help with college.
