The Path of Least Resistance (Frugal Friday)
Posted By Jessica Fisher On November 7, 2013 @ 9:38 pm In Frugal Friday | 5 Comments
Today’s tip is probably not very frugal. But, it may save you thousands of dollars in medical bills.
Yesterday was rough. As I explained to the folks on Facebook , it was not without excitement: back pain, Urgent Care with my daughter, husband injured, two hockey practices. The hours between 3 pm — when I realized we needed to go to Urgent Care — and 6 when the first practice was scheduled, were spent in waiting rooms and pharmacy lines.
And I left the house without a real meal plan in action. Even though I started the week with a meal plan, things CLEARLY have not gone as planned this week. One son and I texted while I was at CVS, debating our choices. In the end I chose the fast food taco place located on the way home from the pharmacy.
Sometimes taking the easiest route, the path of least resistance, is the best one for the circumstances at hand. Don’t drive yourself crazy in the name of frugality. Don’t extend yourself past what you can reasonably bare just to save a buck or two.
Be wise. And sometimes choose the easier way, even if it costs a little more.
How do you handle trying moments like these?
This is Frugal Friday. In an effort to make these weekly financial discussions more interactive, I’m no longer posting a link-up. Feel free to leave a link in the comments. But better yet, chat with us on today’s topic.
