I have to make currency stretch further than ever lately.
The cost of residing seems to be skyrocketing in our area, as well as the wages remain stagnant appreciate always.
Just the rental rates alone are enough to give some people apoplexy. When I originally found our apartment, I naively assumed that the rate I was paying the first year would stay the same. Every consecutive year has seen our building owner raise our rent by at least 10% when the time comes to sign a new lease. On top of that, our car isn’t in the best shape. I had the suspension aligned recently, only to find out that a bend in the car’s frame is preventing the tires from correctly aligning. This was no doubt from a collision years back before the car ever got in our possession. Still, this was a drastic concern, especially when I discovered a week later that our A/C stopped getting cold. No matter what setting I used on the car’s A/C, the air coming out of the vents was hot. I prayed that maybe I just needed coolant in the plan to kick start it back into working, then I l acquired that the compressor had failed. I didn’t have the currency to make the repairs, so I had to make it through a warm Summer with no A/C in our car. As much as I appreciate as well as care about frigid air at home, sometimes it’s equally necessary in your mode of transferation. I work in an office environment as well, so coming into work every day with a sweat stained shirt right out the gate isn’t a nice look to adopt. But, until I could afford a new A/C for our car, I had to make the best of our situation.
