What is your biggest budget buster?

Posted by   + Show Post
We have to keep to a very very strict budget especially since our you gest was diagnosed with cancer last Christmas. But I find that there are things that happen that bust our budget.
Lately, its been our chemo trips. His treatment became ineffective and the cancer started to run rampant. So they changed his treatment from one day of chemo every three weeks to 5 straight days of chemo every three weeks. His treating hospital is 6 hours away so we have to stay there... Budget KILLER!

Wow! $35 for ur registration for your car? When I had my car I paid $85/yr for it. Our truck is $94/ year! I wish ours was that cheap.

June and July are vehicle inspections for us.  But they weren't to bad this year.  $500 for the truck and $120 for the van. 

and the taxes on the cars. that will always get me too.

We live in PA we only pay taxes on our vehicles when we buy them.  We pay a state registration $35 for a car.  Not sure what a truck is.  We pay these 1 time a year.
