Dentist visit sucks away more money

March 18th, 2009 at 10:07 pm

I had to take $145 out of my emergency fund today to pay the dentist for x-rays, periodontal check and cleaning. Interestingly enough, that makes my emergency fund $491, exactly what my credit card debt is.

I am paying 0% interest on my credit card for the rest of the year, so there is no hurry to pay if off. I'd rather have the money in my EF.

I ALMOST charged the dentist appointment, because I didn't have my checkbook with me. But the receptionist agreed to let me run home and get the checkbook, so I avoided that temptation.

Bad news -- I have broken a filling and he wants to cap it with a crown. I really can't afford that! I told him I'd think about it.

I need a windfall.
