The inflation based increases in prices have entirely made it difficult for me to survive in my life.
- The cost of living has gone up for most people, but for me it has been exceedingly difficult to find the currency for anything.
I’m left grasping at straws every week trying to figure out how I’m going to afford my bills and future expenses. Last year I had to drop $200 on my Heating as well as A/C system to avoid spending $3,000. My compressor stopped working and the heating and cooling company was telling me that I lapsed on my labor warranty. While the section was still under warranty with the Heating as well as A/C manufacturer, the labor to repair the compressor was going to cost me $3,000 if the employer wouldn’t throw me a bone. You’re supposed to keep a multiple-a-year repair contract at all times to retain your labor warranty, but I didn’t know that. Thankfully the expense was only $200 and not more, but it still took a giant chunk of currency out of my bank account. It’s unlucky timing because next week I have to renew my medical cannabis card. This is something that happens once a year but it costs $70 every single time. I wish the two of us could spend $100 every numerous years instead so the cost wouldn’t be so frequent. For a state that harps on being low in taxes, they entirely love to hit the medical marijuana patients with whatever taxes they can. I know I should be thankful the two of us don’t have taxed purchases at the cannabis dispensaries. Some of my friends out west spend money a minimum of 20% taxes on every single marijuana purchase from a legal dispensary.
