68. When you do get insurance
If you are lucky enough to get a job that provides insurance- make a doctors appt as soon as possible and ask him/her to write the prescriptions so that you can get 3 months worth at a time.

This may or may not save you copays but it does save a little time and trouble in picking things up if you use medication on a regular basis. Also, sometimes you can get them by mail.

And make sure you ask your doctor if there are generic products coming out for any of your medications. My doctor keeps up to date on this stuff so it saves me money.
