When you start a family, you need to begin thinking about the future. You have to consider the cost of college fees for your kids, future unforeseen health issues and even maintenance costs on your home. Look further, and you need to think about retirement. It seems far off right now, but it isn’t really. Before you know it, you’ll be in the golden years with very little gold to spend. You must start preparing for the future right now, no matter what age you are. It’s crucial that you don’t waste another minute thinking, I’ll do it tomorrow. Tomorrow is already here.

The Day that Changed My Life

Screen Shot 2016-10-18 at 8.33.23 PM

August 4, 2016 ~  It started out like any other summer day.  I woke up, grabbed a cup of coffee and took the dogs for a walk!!

Once I got home I just wasn’t feeling well.  I remember Tim calling from work and telling him that my upper back area hurt, and that it “felt like  I had a cold in my shoulder.  Maybe I slept with the fan hitting it all night?”  He didn’t really agree with me, but after 27 years of marriage he’s used to me saying weird things!!  As the day went on I just didn’t feel right.  I couldn’t shake the feeling. I debated going to see the chiropractor, and around 3:00 figured I’d go get adjusted to see if that would help my shoulder, or me, feel better.  Even though it was 90 plus degrees, I put on a jacket convincing myself it would comfort me and maybe make me feel a bit better.

Look for cheaper providers


It’s a good idea to have a look at how much your current providers are costing you every month. If it seems expensive, it’s time to consider changing to a cheaper provider. You can go on various compare sites to see if there is a better deal for the energy you are currently doing. You can also call your current provider and tell them you’re thinking of leaving. They are likely to offer you a cheaper deal, so you stay with them. Remember to look into different insurances to see what gives you the best deal in the long run.
