New financial goal

walked with mom for 35 min

Went to the Dr today for lab results and new prescriptions. Blood pressure is still too high, 146/102 even with medication so increasing the meds. She combined two pills in one somehow so I still only have one prescription. That will save some money.

She also agreed to let me have 3 months to get my diabetes, cholesterol and triglycerides back under control through diet. That's great since I don't want to go on more pills. So now my new financial goal is to lose weight. If I can lose weight and control my diet, I will save a min of $20 a month in new prescription, plus if I get my blood pressure down, she will take me off the new meds, saving me another $10 a month.

Spent $20 on dr visit.

It never fails that you will see tons of great deals on things you're not interested in buying, but as soon as you are interested you can't find any of them. I've seen the Target ads for getting a $10 gc for new prescriptions forever, but now all the sudden when I need one filled, can't find an ad anywhere. I'll keep looking. I need to get this filled this weekend though.

Got the email notice to redeem my $25 restaurant gift certificate for buying the Entertainment book. I didn't know this was the same as or I might have waited for a different deal. They never have any restaurants that are close to me or that I go to listed. Most of them are bars, but I have a year to redeem so maybe something will come up.

    Try just calling your local pharmacies & ask if they have a deal for new customers/prescriptions. Worst that can happen is they will say No.
