New year...and new health care costs. At my workplace, they told us that their agent warned them of health care cost increases as much as 40%. Thankfully it wasn't quite that bad, but our policy got worse and the costs still went up, and I did notice today that my take home total was less. Tax increases combined with increased cost of health insurance. I guess this is the "changes" that the majority wanted.
Here is my take on the new world of Obama Care. "Good luck," the doctor says as he shows you to the entrance of the maze that has become our health care.

I have mentioned before on my blog some of my projects at my little rental house. I have a basement apt that I've had rented for 8 years straight (same tenants). Well, when the renters moved, I found out that they stopped caring about or cleaning my place years ago. It was awful. It required a lot of work to get it back to a presentable state. I wish I had taken some before pictures so everyone could appreciate the transformation...but I forgot. Maybe that's a good thing, because they surely would have grossed some of you out quite a bit. Anyway, I know it's not art, but I'm quite proud of my efforts just the same, and I thought I'd share.
So there ya go...my budget remodel. I say budget because I did it all myself...I know it's not too fancy, but it's clean, smells good and it is a "rental" so I didn't want to go too overboard.
