Utilizing the Internet to compare prices on products and services really is the smartest way to shop these days. Honestly, I can’t even imagine having to run all over town, from one store to another looking around and asking all the different sales associates all the usual questions. Worst yet, having to wait for the Sunday paper to come so that all the sales fliers will be at your fingertips. Unfortunately these sales don’t usually last longer than a week which can lead to pressure by giving you a time limit.
I have known for a few months now that I will be needing to purchase a new washer and dryer. The ones that are here now were here when we moved into the place and that was well over 12 years ago, so it isn’t a big surprise. Knowing that I will be getting some type of tax refund in the next month or so, I have been researching washer and dryer combos online and have familiarized myself with the numerous washer and dryer combos that are on today’s market so when a sale comes my way I will be able to make a good educated decision when and if the time comes.
In the meantime I really need to get all of my paperwork gathered and organized and trot on down to the tax preparer that sets up at the mall each and every year. It’s just that paperwork and I just don’t get along. As hard as I try to be organized, paper(s) end up all over the house, here and there and every where. Even though I always make up a folder for the inevitable papers that are required each and and every year, they just don’t seem to make it to the folder as quickly as I would like them to.
Every February ends up being a mad scramble trying to get everything in order, so I don’t have to wait until the last minute when the tax preparers are crazy busy. Plus after the holidays are all over and done with I am usually flat broke come February, so that is a good time to try and recover and get a couple of things that I need and/or want along the way. This year I am definitely getting a new washer and dryer first thing before the money disappears right through my fingers and my poor little bank account.
