Save Money Here

...not here.

I've long sustained the belief that being frugal is not being cheap. Now might be the time to touch on when it's best to buck up and rely on the pro's.

1) Anytime safety could be an issue. Please leave the 80' hemlock to the professional. Even if you live and don't crush the neighbors house, there is still an endless list of things that can go wrong. It is just not worth it. Say it with me.
2) Care for your vehicle properly. Most families livelihoods are reliant upon having adequate transportation. Make sure you are preforming regular maintenance and using someone you know and trust. A $10 oil change isn't a good value if little Jimmy forgets to put oil back in. Ya know...
3) Legal matters. I've had my share of them and I'll tell you first hand they are like quicksand. Whether you are writing a will, being sued, selling a house, if it involves a contract, use a professional. Like #1 above, when it goes wrong....it goes really wrong. That said, interview! If you are going to hiring someone pick the best qualified, not the least expensive.
4) Insurance. You don't have to pay for the most expensive policy out there, but for goodness sakes make sure that your assets are adequately covered. Know your risk and be sure they are written into the policy. Review your policies at least every other year to ensure that it is still relevant.
5) Health care. Consider the cost of not going to the doctor. Don't wait till you have to go! Bottom line is there are NO replacement parts and NO loaners for you...so take care of yourself the best you can.
