There was a time when I used to take my family out all of the time. Well, that was until one day when I lost my job. It was a very distressing situation and I was really sad about it. Being laid off is not a fun time for anybody I imagine. Instead of collecting unemployment, I just wanted to pick up a new job right away. I went to a bunch of interviews during that week and I found something that worked for me, but didn’t pay as much as I made before. This basically meant that I had to cut costs everywhere in our budget. One of the first things I had to cut was us eating out often. My son really was upset by this because he thoroughly enjoyed this quality time we spent together and of course the excellent food. I said that we would be able to eat out sometimes, but just not all the time. Well, my son is a pretty smart kid so he was paying attention to how we could save money. He eventually came to me and started asking about our HVAC system maintenance. I said that we had to continue with our HVAC system maintenance because that was a crucial appliance in our household. He said he knew that, but he then asked me why I wasn’t enrolled in an HVAC system maintenance plan. He said he studied it on the internet and we would only have to pay a flat yearly fee to have our HVAC machine taken care of. It included up to 4 repairs to our system per year, and there were 2 major tune-ups performed in the spring and fall seasons. There were other levels of the plan as well if people were looking to have monthly maintenance taken care of. He said we could be saving so much money. I knew he was right because we did pay an extravagant amount to our current HVAC workers. I called up an HVAC company with a solid reputation and decided to get enrolled. I certainly didn’t regret it and right away, I knew we were saving so much that we could actually afford to eat out like we used to.
