This is more of a vent than anything else. I guess I'm glad I decided to start budgeting for October after reading all of you guys' motivational posts, because I realized I'm paying over 100 dollars a month in automatic renewals that I don't think I signed up for! Like, I signed up for a 1 month membership on Sittercity.com, and they've just been renewing it every month. I'm sure there was some small print somewhere that said they were going to do that, but I read pretty closely when I was signing up and didn't see it. I wrote them an e-mail asking them to refund last month, but I doubt they will and I'll probably have to write all of this off as a rather expensive learning experience.
I just feel so taken, you know? How do you ladies protect yourselves against this sort of thing? Am I the only one who winds up in this situation? Do you just read your statements carefully every month?
