I try pretty hard to live frugally. It’s actually a choice I have made in an effort to keep my life simple. I pay my bills on a monthly basis and am very thankful that I have adequate income to “make ends meet”! God has blessed me with all that I need.
Today I was alerted when I received a notice from Nationwide insurance advising me that my policy would be dropped on October 3! Turns out, I am not quite as diligent as I assumed and I forgot to write and mail a check to pay a small monthly insurance premium!
I am so used to most of my expenses to being drawn out of my account automatically, that I slipped up on this one! Luckily, I had subtracted the payment from my checking account and there were no errors on that end, but I was assessed a $15.00 late fee!
So much for all my effort to conserve spending when I make a stupid error like that! $15.00 to me means almost 2 breakfasts out at a local restaurant and that’s far more enjoyable that paying extra to Nationwide!
All in all, I am blessed to have enough money to cover this error…and I even had breakfast out today!
How many of you pay your bills automatically? I will have to look into this feature for my Nationwide insurance!
Happy Hump Day wishes to all!
