Saving = Waiting

September 28th, 2011 at 03:58 am

I read a really interesting blog on The Simple Dollar. It says that the hardest part of getting your financial situation in order is the waiting. Because as everyone will agree, getting out of debt and saving for something such as a downpayment for the house or car, will not happen overnight. Not even days and months, but years.

I have also noticed that it's ironic how whenever the
money's tight, that's when you realize that there's a leak in the roof or the light bulbs suddenly needs changing, there's a sudden medical emergency, etc. Just goes to show that the universe has a sense of humor.

    I have been struck more and more at how medical emergencies are such a huge financial AND personal disaster (potentially) in the States, and how they are more of a personal issue in much of the rest of the world. I don't think that the Canadian and UK health systems are anywhere close to perfect, but they do lead to some coverage and prevent bankruptcy due to illness/injury. Frankly, I think that there is a LOT to be learned from the health systems of Switzerland and Holland, where they combine a cogent government plan with private insurance companies.
