Okay, so yesterday we chatted about appointments for ourselves that not only keep us health, happy and skipping along, but in doing so, saves us money. Now it is time for other appointments to make that can also keep more moolah in the piggy bank.
Car - Time to get that car checked. Look over the tires, how worn are they? How about a good overall tune up before the winter months hit? Getting your auto in good winter condition can save you tons of money in the long run.
Home - When was the last time you had the heating system inspected? What about that fireplace cleaned? Is your insulation still in good condition? As the cooler days come along, you may be using things you haven't used in months. Make sure they are in good working order and not costing you money.
Roof - Unlike the front door, we can't readily check that roof, can we? It may cost a little bit of money to have someone look over your roof, but save you hundreds of dollars if left unchecked. This time of year is good to do it, before pounds of snow may create a huge impact - literally - on your roof.
Gutters - I just have been getting on my dad about this. He's too old (sorry, Dad!) to climb on ladders and clean those gutters, and paying a local handy guy to take care of that will prevent a huge bill if they get clogged later in the year.
Insurance policy - This is a perfect time of year to take a few moments and look over all of you insurance polices. Have you made any improvements or additions? Have you bought anything that is worth a lot of money that you may need to insure? Check it over and see what needs to be altered
What do you need to get checked before winter hits?
