Don’t Drown Yourself In Vet Bills!
Having a dog is awesome. It’s probably one of the best things you can do. It’s literally like living with your best friend, but minus the petty arguments and bitchiness! But sometimes, they fall ill or get injured, and not only is that heartbreaking, but our bank account cries a little inside too, because, well, vet bills are damn expensive!!!
Here’s how you can keep your head above water if, (God forbid) your pup needs to take a trip downtown.
It sounds so obvious, because – it is. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Being responsible with your money is a battle of will every single day. Other than all the things you need to spend your money on, like the bills and the groceries – those shoes are also calling your name… But that’s where you have to say no. One way to manage your money is by creating your own personal budget, and sticking to it! Any expenses that aren’t essential – take them off the list. Think of all the money that you’ll be saving!
There’s always the possibility of taking on an extra job for some more cash. There are plenty of jobs that you can do on the weekend or in the evening, like waitressing. A few hours here and there may not sound like a lot, but it all adds up in the end. There are other ways of making money in the comfort of your own home too. You can fill out surveys, or even start your own blog.
Ask for help
Sometimes you just can’t do it alone, and in that case, you’ll need to stop worrying about pride and just ask for help. If you have any family that could help you out, then you could always ask them to lend you some money and then pay them back gradually whenever you can. But not everyone has this option, which means you may have to consider unsecured personal loans. This is the most common option when looking for financial assistance. They tend to be so popular because they also have lower interest rates that any other loan – which is always a bonus.
Sell unwanted things
Everyone is guilty of having things hidden away in cupboards, or in the attic, or the basement, or the spare room. It’s just a part of life. And as daunting as it may be thinking about having to sort out all the boxes of lovable junk – it’s so worth it. You know that you’ll never use that lamp, or play that game – and you definitely won’t wear that jacket again. So sell them! You can do this by word of mouth, have a garage sale, or sell your items online with sites like eBay and Amazon. Or if you’re feeling social, throw a selling party and invite all of your friends and family round. Drink cocktails, listen to music, and sell your junk!
So as you can see, there are a lot of different options you have to prepare yourself for the dreaded vet day. As long as you’re smart, and have a little self-control, there’s no reason you should be consumed by bills.
