An injury can be a huge drain on your bank balance. It’s possible that a serious injury stops you from earning a fixed income which is always going to be a nightmare. To deal with this, we recommend that you do think about exploring options such as disability insurance. This means that if you are impacted by a long term injury then you can claim the cushion of cash that you need. You might want to address what caused the injury. Be aware that it’s common for an injury to get worse after a poor surgical treatment. If this does happen, you should definitely think about speaking to medical malpractice lawyers to claim the damages you deserve. 

Bad Mortgage

Next, you should think about how a bad mortgage can impact your bank balance. A poor mortgage will always put you under far more financial pressure overall and could leave you struggling to cover all of your costs. To avoid a bad mortgage, you need to make sure that you do improve your credit before you start seeking alone. There are numerous steps that you can take to improve your credit rating. For instance, you might want to think about getting rid of your debts from sources such as credit cards. 

Legal Trouble 

Another issue that can drain your bank balance is legal trouble. That’s why you need to make sure that you don’t fall on the wrong side of the law. If you are running your own business or side hustle, then it’s important that you are aware of the laws and regulations that could impact you in the long or short term. To deal with this, you should think about hiring a legal advisor. Be aware that this can be an outsourcing solution and will always save you more than it costs. 

Unexpected Repairs 

Finally, an unexpected repair for your car or your home can be a massive drain on your bank balance that you will almost certainly want to avoid. So, how should you handle this issue? Well, we recommend that you make sure that you are completing the necessary checks on your home and your car throughout the year. That way, you can guarantee that it does remain in the right condition. For instance, you should check your heating system on a bi-annual or annual basis. This can help you avoid a replacement and instead may just mean that you need a repair at some. The difference in cost here can be thousands. 

We hope this helps you understand some of the bank balance drainers that you might have to deal with in your life. By tackling problems like this head on, you can make sure that they don’t continue to play havoc with your income. Instead, you’ll be able to keep everything on the right track.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
