Believe it or not but I’m a fully grown man plus homeowner who never entirely has had a detailed household budget.
- My husband plus I sort of just knew the parameters of our income plus our expenses.
But the pandemic kind of changed all that. First, the two of us both got sent home from the zone controlled Heating plus Air Conditioning of the offices the two of us worked in plus had to labor from home in our own air conditioner. Then came the spend money cuts. They were deep that first year. But our expenses were much lower because the two of us weren’t entirely doing anything outside the air conditioner safety of our home. Plus, we’d sort of pulled in the reins on spending in general once the spend money cuts happened. Still, the two of us took this occasion to get much more reality when it came to our finances. And that started with a budget. This was not only an effort to save plus get a superb handle on our finances, it was a lot of discovery as well. For 1, the two of us were spending far more in air conditioner than the two of us needed to. This was due to not paying enough attention to thermostat control plus the fact that I had never once prepped the house. So this Spring I made some swings to go along with the air conditioner tune-up from the Heating plus Air Conditioning professionals that happens each Spring. I replaced all the weather stripping in the home plus sealed up all the exterior gaps plus cracks I could find. Then, I installed some great solar drapes to stop the direct sunshine heating on the side of the home that gets it all afternoon. And I’ve finally l acquired how to program the digital thermostat for the peak heating hours of the afternoon!
