I think that it’s good to always do the best you can to contain spending.
That goes double for when the economy is undergoing contraction like it is now. When those times come, I can get fairly crazy about making sure that I always know where every dollar is going. And, I am more than prepared to make a few difficult cuts on expenditures. However, I do draw the line when it comes to cheaping out on Heating, Ventilation, & A/C repair. There is no real replacement for professional Heating, Ventilation, & A/C repair. I can deal with generic this or that just to save some money. Not going golfing or putting off plans to trade up on my truck are also good with me. I guess there entirely isn’t all that much that I need. As a civilization, we are being told that we just can’t do without all this superfluous stuff. Is it fun to get the latest & greatest cell phone or electronic device? Absolutely it is. But, it really isn’t necessary & right now necessary is what matters. I think that if all of us simply broke it down to what we actually have to have, then saving money would be so much easier. I suppose that I want to eat healthy food, and so I’m more than willing to spend money for that. Staying comfortable inside my home while avoiding the heat in the Summer is also a need. That’s why making sure the Heating, Ventilation, & A/C is officially repaired is the only way that I will go. There is just no way that I would let a person who isn’t certified & can’t guarantee their job ever touch our Heating, Ventilation, & A/C system at our house.
