I don’t know if this is a good thought or not. I know that even asmy husband is full time, and I work part time…we don’t even have
what I am about to ask/mention to you. We should though.
Anyway, the first thing I thought of when you mentioned all of thisis a savings account. I know that sounds so nuts, but even for
married people working full time it is a good thing to have to fall
back on incase things get tight. I just happened to think of it whenyou said you are single. I mean, with job security the way it is,
the chances of something happening with two people getting fired,
laid off, sick, what ever…is slim. But you have only yourself andthe kids. That is something I would think about maybe working on.
Then the other major expenses I thought of right after medical is
dental/vision. Are your kids covered there too…and what aboutyourself?? My biggest bills aren’t with the doctor, as I also have
private/state insurance for the kids. It is the dental stuff. It is
very difficult to get the state insurance to pay for anything otherthan regular cleanings and fillings…so if you have lots of dental
issues…look for something to suppliment and figure it in. I’m
still working on that. My 15 year old needs braces desperately!!!I don’t know if there is anything else that you would need to think
of. Just making sure that you could pay the bills and groceries with
your pay. Also I would plan on all the little things as well in thatbudget, from stamps to socks and everything in between. Atleast
there are good clothing stores and such to work with, and good
discount stores to buy groceries.I hope it all works out well for you.
