Fiscal fast, day 19: talking turkey, saving on RXs
Roasting it off in my maternal grandmother's vintage, Westinghouse oven roaster. Still works great all these years later! So nice to have an extra oven when needed.
Sides will be homemade gravy, homemade and canned cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, steamed carrots with peas, a small green salad with choice of dressing.
I even plan on making some pumpkin pies.

Better yet: watching the calendar and planning my medical visits if at all possible to after we've hit our high deductible, and it's all free. I ordered my refills on line today, they will be mailed to me within 1 week. I will do this again in April and July, and my Rx's will continue to be free as my current HSA plan runs until Aug 31st. Starting in Sept, we will again have to hit $4000 in expenses before they will pay out. I plan on returning to my Allergist in August, so at least his visit will be covered. I am uncertain if they would refill a RX in Aug, if I ordered the same RX in July.
