Investment in myself - literally

October 29th, 2014 at 04:54 pm

I got the estimate for some dental work today, to the tune of $11k. Ouch! This totally throws my saving plan out the window. The only consolation is that it will be spread out between 2 years and 45% will be tax deductible. I can’t even complain about price gouging consider that it’s at the low end of the market price for top of the line service.

    Ouch! I had $7K of dental work that I managed to offset considerably with pretax deductions and credit card rewards. If you haven't considered that, you might want to consider opening a rewards card each time a big payment is coming up. At least you'll get cash back or gift cards for your pain.

    Only open credit cards if you can pay off the balance before you are charged interest! Definitely make a plan for how to pay for it.

    Wow that is simply shocking! I had no idea anything could cost that much at the dentist!

    I don't want to talk about what my implant and crown cost me. And that it's the one tooth that has plagued me since I was 18. And I had an abcess last year but then I had to clear it out and do extraction and everything else. And now it's still a problem. uggh. The pain, the time, everything!
