The Numbers Game

$500- deductible paid by me on my car this week
+ $216- for damages not covered by insurance or the deductible
+ $2750- how much insurance had to pay on my car this week
+ $114- how much I pay in insurance monthly (don't judge- I freely admit I speed- a lot!)
+ $150- for the ticket I owe Nevada Highway Patrol for speeding
+ $284- how much Arlington County, Virginia claims I owe them for having a car there 2 years ago for 2 months (I say BS!)
+ $305- monthly car payment
+ $15- weekly gas (let's hear it for the 4 mile commute to work! w00t!)

= Erin missing the DC metro system (and don't even try and tell me to try Trax. it's not even close.)


  1. I agree- the East coast has it down when it comes to transportation!! I wish Texas had something like that too!

  2. Wow, now I don't feel *quite* so bad about my $500/mo combined car expenses ($200 car payment, $200 gas, $113 insurance 4 out of 6 months). I think the insurance rates here are just more expensive--I got a quote for possibly moving to Utah and I'd only save $10.

  3. (Also, utterly jealous of your weekly gas bill. It's downright ridiculous what I'm paying.)
