Save Money To Accommodate Your Home’s Repairs And Maintenance

Have you ever been in a situation where you just have had successfully solved a big household problem but then after a while something comes up again?  I mean it’s like the one-thing-after-another kind of situation, right?  It’s frustrating and depressing I know.  These major home problems can come along unexpectedly so it is highly recommended to save money for emergency purposes.  This way, you will have funds to use on repair and maintenance.  We cannot predict when this time will arrive but it is very important that we are prepared.

As our homes age, the appliances and all the equipment gets old as well.  Warranties get expired.  But if you have a home insurance, repair and maintenance (replacements of equipment) may get covered.

We encountered a problem with our air conditioning unit a year ago.  It suddenly stopped cooling.  My daughter and I was at home one hot summer day when I noticed that the air from the air conditioner stayed warm all day.  So I told my husband about the problem when he got home that evening.  He tried troubleshooting for a couple of hours but it didn’t work.  Something was wrong with our air conditioning unit.  You see, its super hot here in Texas in the summer.  Staying cool at home is more comfortable and definitely ideal than going to the malls.

The next day my dear husband looked for a local Air Conditioning Repair and Installation service.  After checking out a few service providers, he found one that didn’t asked too much for the repair services.  The maintenance guy came promptly and looked at our air conditioning unit for problems.  Hubby thought he’ll need to replace the whole unit because it’s 10 years old.  After two days of servicing, the heating problem got fixed.  Ang guess what?  We didn’t have to replace the unit.  The problem was the motor.  So the service person recommended to replace the motor in the air conditioning unit.  Whew!  That was a relief.  We were very satisfied with the air conditioning repair and maintenance service.  Heating and cooling in our house is back to normal again.

I know that a problem will arise in the future (knock on wood), but I hope that it won’t be soon.  It is best to have the major repair done the soonest possible time than ignoring it because it will just lead to a bigger problem.  On the other hand, if you are saving money for your travel and vacation, save extra money for emergency needs.  Emergency needs include home repair and maintenance, and appliance and equipment replacement.

Online Shopping Experience Is Different From In-Store

Being a woman has the most privileges.  We can wear heeled shoes, sandals, carry handbags, and wear makeup.  And we enjoy these things especially when we go shopping.

I buy most women accessories online because I do not want to drive all the way to the mall just to look and get one or two items.  In fact, I take advantage of the free shipping offers from online stores.  If an item is not what I expected to be, I just mail it back to the store for free too.  Printing shopping coupons is interesting to me because I get discounts.  Good thing I do not have to disturb my cousin to have my coupons printed at her house.  My husband bought a wireless printer for me on Mother’s Day.  What a nice gift!

Most of the time I get discount coupons in the mail too.  I just hate it when junk mails are more than the regular mail in our mailbox.  Although, if you dig into them, there are interesting information too.  My husband’s friend was looking for a cheap photoconductor for a copier.  Good thing one of the flyers I got in the mailbox has something offer for copier supplies.  My husband’s friend got a good discount on that.  Knowing the part number for photoconductor for lanier 5020 msd is hard to remember.  But he did.

Shopping experience online is different from in-store.  Online, you can look for the items you really need for yourself, for your family, and for the home.  Now that the heat is on, summer clothing and accessories are the trend.  My family is planning for a swimming soon.  And I am excited to buy a new swimwear.  Yes.  This is another privilege of being a woman, wearing a swimsuit.  And what I like is a maxine barbados shirred girl leg 1pc.  I don’t care too much for two-piece swimwear.  This one is good for me.  Like I said, the heat is on.  Keeping cool is best in the summer.  Our house is well-insulated.  With the help of our ceiling fans, the air circulation in our home is pretty much helping our air-con from running more often.  I don’t think we need new fans right now.  Maybe in the future, we will be able to shop for new ones when we get to find lowes ceiling fans on sale again.

Your Tap Water Can Save You Money

Since my pregnancy, I have been very watchful with my health. I am very careful with what I eat and drink. My doctor prescribed vitamin and food supplements for additional nutrients for me and my baby.

Until now, I am still taking the vitamins. And I am doing my best to eat healthy foods. I don’t drink much coffee or soda. But I drink plenty of water. That is good for me. Especially that our water is filtered. I used to drink bottled water before but with Puriteam countertop water filter, I enjoyed our tap water better.

It is saving us money too. Buying the tap water filter for $99 is worth it because its filter can last up to three years. It is better than buying bottled water every time.
My friend uses a drinking water filter but she is not happy with it. I bet that with Puriteam water filter, she will not have any complain. It is a winner of Parent Tested Parent Approved award so this product is safe for the family.
