young children or elderly relatives living with you. A cold home, for example can be terrible for vulnerable humans. Take this opportunity to fortify your home.
Once you are armed with your list and know what you can afford, head out and get some quotes. Try to stick with professionals on the big jobs. Most companies, if you tell them your budget, will work hard to fit within it. So don’t assume because you couldn’t afford their quote, you can’t get the work fixed. Just talk to them, find out if there is another way of repairing the problem and then work together to find a solution.
It is also a good idea to look at your finances. You are at the beginning of the year and you may have taken a bit of a battering over the previous year. So, get everything out, including your savings and investments and have a really good look at where you are at. It might be that a savings account has more money in that you realized, or that you are making payments out every month on something you really don’t use. Such as a gym membership you forgot, or even a package on your Sky TV that you don’t really need if the children have left.
Getting organized now will make your year a lot easier. A great piece of advice from successful business owners is “Don’t get the urgent jobs done first, get the important jobs done first” the assumption is that by doing the most important jobs first, you may find there are less urgent ones coming up. This is great advice to apply to your life. Get all your ducks in a row and head into 2017 knowing your life is running efficiently or that you are working towards that.
Then, take the best season to relax and enjoy yourself!
