Scavenger Tip #4
Last week Wednesday I had a very unexpected expense. I had to have an emergency appendectomy. Fortunately I have health insurance through Obamacare. So one of my scavenger tips for the day is please if you do not have health insurance look at how you can obtain some. Without it I'd be thousands of dollars in debt today from last weeks totally unplanned event. As a self employed person I'm so glad that I can obtain health insurance. Although it is an expense I'd rather not have to have, I'm glad now that I didn't just assume I could go without if I tried to stay healthy. No-one can forestall certain health events like appendicitis.
My second scavenger tip of the day is to save cardboard rolls that come inside bubble wrap, tape or other types of things. I use these as a sort of box when shipping small breakables. I just tape the item into the roll (tape over each open end) and then put the roll into a polymailer. It weighs less than most boxes and costs nothing. I hate just throwing out the rolls. You can also use them as packing material if weight isn't an issue.
