- Oil Changes and Car Maintenance: I hate spending extra money to keep something running. I know it’s what you’re suppose to do, but I still don’t like paying for that kind of stuff.
- Health Insurance: It’s expensive, and from my experience, everytime I try to file a claim, the insurance company tries to find a reason to deny it, which means I spend over 45 minutes on hold with their customer service. Yet, it would be foolish to go without it.
- Parking pass: I know that what I’m paying right now for downtown parking at my apartment is a bargin, but since I grew up in small towns, I’m not used to paying for parking. Yes, I could park for free on the street four blocks away, but the neighborhood four blocks away is ranked the 14th most dangerous neighborhood in the US by NeighborhoodScoutReports.com. I don’t plan on walking there by myself at night, so the better alternative is to shell out money for a parking pass.
- Gas: Yes, I listed another car-related item. For some reason, I always underestimate how much it would cost to fill up a tank.
- Tuition: This isn’t really a necessity, unless your career goals requires a degree. I don’t really mind tuition itself, but why does it have to be so expensive?
