After getting the estimate cost of the new home I planned to build from the ground up on some abandoned land that I bought in Texas, it was time to get down to the groundworks of my plan. As a owner builder, the first thing I did was make a few modifications to my building plans to fit in with my cities building codes. The cost breakdown in the construction of my home, including the foundation, lumber, framing,plumbing, heating, electrical, and builders profit was a good 30k for this 3000 sq ft project. While the electricians and plumbers took care of their areas of this 7 and a half month project, I helping the carpenters with their job, and all the painting I’m doing myself. Now with only 3 months of work to do in this project, I already know that every bit of work was worth it.
I manage several stores in my area, and I am always searching for ways to reduce costs. However, I am not willing to sacrifice quality just to save a few dollars. Customer satisfaction is very important to our business, and we don’t that we will not attract new customers if we don’t keep our current customers happy.
One of the best ways I have found to save money is by purchasing supplies online. This month, I purchased paper towels, printer ink, toner, paper, NCR pads and numerous other items from several different websites.
In order to maximize my savings, I look for companies that offer free shipping and other perks along with discounted prices. Since shipping times can vary, it is important to place your order early enough when you are ordering online. I like to purchase supplies at least three months in advance to make sure we don’t run out of anything important.
It’s warm in this part of the country, even during the holiday season. Air conditioning Manchester is a must have for every home or office, just ask my neighbor. His family always makes sure that their central cooling system is updated seasonally. They have lived here several years, so nobody needs to tell them how important regular maintenance is to any hard working cooling device. It seems like someone is always on their rooftop every few months. This is the best way to make sure that your equipment is running efficiently and never breaks down in an emergency. By doing this regularly for any home, office, or other important place you own, your family will avoid unnecessary costs each year. My neighbor and his family are a great example of how to keep cool during every season. This year, I will be following their example and keeping my cooling system maintained.
