Dealing with my finances alone is hard after having my parent’s safety net underneath me for most of my life. Now that they’re gone and my dad isn’t around to help me with my taxes, it’s my responsibility to learn these things on my own. In hindsight, I believe ashamed that I relied on them so much to begin with. They were always ready and willing to help me after all, however they entirely would have done me a lot of favors by helping me learn some of the harder lessons on my own. I believe about my own future children a lot and wonder if I’ll ever be capable of doing better than what my parents did for me, all the while making sure that I go out of my way to prepare them for a life spent alone if the worst ever manages to occur. Thankfully, my life is getting better slowly as I am more dedicated to making budgets and sticking to them. It does no a single any great to make a list of expenses if that list is ignored throughout the month. This year I have a little boost from a greater than average tax return, most of which is going towards an air cleaner that I’m buying for my central Heating and A/C system. I have an air cleaner that sits on my desk in my lake living room, but I would like a greater a single that filters all of the air inside my house. That’s when my Heating and A/C supplier recommended that I consider buying a media air cleaner. This results in cleaner indoor air, especially if it’s paired with a UV-C light of some kind in the air handler of the central Heating and A/C system.
