Looks like plenty of you plan to be reaching into your pocketbooks and pulling out bigger fistfuls of cash.

Jack Knipe: Health care. A new year means a new $3000.00 deductible that I cannot afford. :(

Susan Harris Pottberg: I agree with Jack - then add my power bill to the list.

Joel Fitch: Paying more for something, but NOT dreading it...A WEDDING!!!!!!
Stephanie Storm-Robertson: Taxes. I got married last year and that seems to have caused a bigger tax bill! Ugh!

Patricia McCorkle Crandall: I've already been notified that my "Duke Energy" bill is going up $35. per month. I also dread the rising cost of food and gasoline.

Jennifer Bell: Car maintenance or replacement.

Teri Schneiderman March: Daycare.

Leah Book: Health Insurance, my husband’s company doesn't offer it and man it’s expensive!

Rhiannon Wells: Health Insurance. [My husband] Raul's premiums just went WAY up, and we're still paying for bills from last year!


@MishelleyA: I'm dreading paying more for gas this year. Heard on the news this morning it might get up to $4.00 a gallon. Yikes! :)

@News3David: health insurance and gas. Particularly health insurance. Continues to cost more, while seeming to cover less.

@murphster47: coffee seems to keep increasing.
