Highland is seeing more and more people like this woman, who has just lost her job and has no insurance.
Next time you make a major purchase like this, think tghnis through. I guess this means that you also don’t have at least 3 months of living expenses saved up on the side. What would happen if you got sick and couldn’t work for a while? Actually next time you make a small purchase, think through that too.I don’t want to come off sounding mean, although I don’t think I succeeded, but there are so many people in backwards situations like this. I was once there too. A little financial literacy will go a long way.
