Ugh - have a gum infection - which means another round of dental investigation, as I try to figure out the best way to proceed. Being a performer, this is vital! I am supplementing my antibiotics with LOTS of Vit. C & an herbal gum treatment - getting probiotics to protect the flora & fauna in the bod!
Is this going to be another "teeth & gum period"? I go through them periodically....Might be the time to get my implants & even consider veneers for my 40-yr-old dental work? I could then go whiter in color for my smile....
All of my Soc. Sec. $ is going to go for teeth for a while, alas...
We spend a lot of $ on meds & medical issues - so I try to save everywhere else. I have 2 pairs of eyeglasses with vintage frames I picked up for practically nothing - which saved a LOT on the the glasses - & was all covered by hubby's insurance.
Found a deal on 10 pairs of sunglasses for $10 + shipping at graveyardmall.com - and I ordered the bunch. I am always losing sunglasses, and somehow, I am down to one or 2 pairs at the moment & the pickings at the dollar store have been slim lately....But 10 prs should tide me over quite nicely! We will see.
Xmas was bountiful - but now we are back to pinching our pennies, per usual....How are you all? Holding on against inflation & all that stuff, I trust...(if you crunch the numbers, we all are a litle bit broker than before due to the change in our currency's value, oh, well....) At least hubby & I are very used to dealing with these issues with frugality - so no painful learning curve for US....
