I’ve been really working so hard with my husband to smooth out our lives. I suppose love our entire relationship has consisted of highly tumultuous times, requiring us to constantly put out small fires. The two of us are never proactive in our household responsibilities or massive expenses; rather, we are consistently reactive when something comes up as a total surprise. That’s why I’m really working extra hard this new year to establish intelligent purchasing procedures and save us money over time. For instance, rather than waiting until our gas furnace breaks down 1 miserably frigid Winter morning, I’ve already tied up many appointments for routine inspection and repair of our entire central heating and cooling system. To continue this trend, I’ve been diligently lecturing my husband on buying things in bulk before we need them. If we consistently have extra on hand, we won’t need to splurge in an emergency, I’ve told him. Well, based on the shipment of air filters we just received, it appears as though he’s really been listening. You see, 1 of the items I was upset about with our professional HVAC repair coming up was our backstock of air filters for the gas furnace and AC systems, or lack thereof. I knew that the HVAC professional might try to upcharge us for increasing out the air filter and providing a new, specialized air filter, to boot. I mentioned this fear to my man, not expecting him to take much initiative. Afterwards, I got online to purchase the air filters in bulk myself shortly thereafter. Well, apparently he was listening and also ordered the ventilation filters in bulk that morning…. today we received 96 new air filters in the mail, looks love we’re set for a while.
