 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: Why is there an adjustment on my bill?

In addition to what stannius said - make sure you understand if the $113 bill is a facility charge or a profee charge (doctor's professional billing). Most services will have two different bills. You didnt say what the adjustment was on the bill (in detail). Was it like: $300 charges for xxx service...

On average I spend $400/mn. Most ppl faint at that. I like what I like. That includes the coffee beans I buy for home and work. The total went up after I stopped eating out so much, as I expected. I eat out 1x/wk on average for $7-20 usually. I didnt spend nearly so much on groceries when I ate like...

I've been really converting to "eat what you have" lately. I think it has made a difference in food costs and much less food waste. I craved chicken with rice and zuccini this w/e. I had yellow squash but no zuccini. I almost went for a side food trip to satisfy my craving, rationalizing I...

There are so many possible answers to your query. I like the way my dad did it: He paid tuition and fees equal to a certain amt. If I could not come in at that budget then I had to figure out how to pay the difference. Student loans werent all that normal when I went to school and everyone around me...

I was/am a spender AND a saver. I spend like I'm rich - but only a set amount every month and only after I save a certain amt. My whole life my dad taught me to save in percentages; this works great because no matter how little I earned I could always save 10%. I have a savings account and subaccoun...

It is time to seriously consiered a new used car for myself, sad to say. My old car (14 years) has now cost over $1500 in six weeks in repair with another $1000 needed but my mechanic told me I could wait (for now). When I spent the first $1300, I thought "Well, that's it for the year, and if i...

"What do you do for a living? I am in hospital finance - a health system analyst actually. I track the system's processes to uncover what leaks money - then put in ways to cut back on losses (only to be ignored until next time :P ) What is your career? How did you get there (ie, what sort of sc...

It depends on the insurer. I have State Farm - and they "ignore" an accident if the payout is less than a certain amt. So my rate did not go up. Is that $467 a YEAR?? In DC? If so - that is great! I had no idea one could get it that cheap in such a location. (I'm in a MD - a very expensive...

I live on a small island off Cape Cod. I think we're at the upper end of the living expenses spectrum. I do wish we could give up meat, but my daughter has a neurological problem that has her on a high protein, high fat diet. She'll be on this diet for 2 more years, so we have to get very creative ...

Yar, totally know the Bag Lady Syndrome. And it is a woman thing it seems. I don't have an explanation for it. I just live it and hope I die before I run out of money. Reading your last post OP - have you considered openng up your own shelter? There's one where I live that was started by a woman who...

Fresh laid eggs (too fresh - you must lift them from under chickens, yikes

This made me laugh :lol: When you say fresh you really mean fresh!
What about giving up meat? Would that help at all with your bill?
Where do you live that it is so expensive?

Like you, I've found some cheaper places but the compromises are not worth the savings (about $50/month in my search). I live in a college town and there are some cheapo apartment complexes that lots of undergrad students flock to and they have their parties and their all-hours loitering in the par...
