April weekends are lovely and so tempting to get outside and enjoy the nice weather! Alas, I am stuck in in the house all weekend so I can finish up my taxes and get all the paperwork done. I hate filing and paperwork – I would MUCH rather be outside in the sunshine with my dogs or my family.
Although we get an extra two days this year to beat the filing deadline, I don’t like to wait until the very last minute. But I sure did push this out to the last couple of days before they are due. We have until midnight on Tuesday night this year. I hope to get everything done and dropped off Sunday night.
Running a business like a Bed and Breakfast is pure pleasure for me but as the times have been tighter lately, then I have really started using discount coupons. I have always been a penny pincher but now I find myself pinching even more.
With a business like mind, there’s always something I’m wanting to buy for the different rooms like grandfather clocks for the old fashioned rooms and the entrance hall. Would you believe that I even found Grandfather clock discount coupons? Well I did and also found some great savings with them. Now I can buy more than I thought I would be able to.
Most all of my advertisement for my Bed and Breakfast has come from word of mouth. One of the college students that worked for me through the summer and part time after they go back to college has offered to build me a web site about my place. I told them to shoot out some ideas at me and I would let them know.
The more I think of it, the better I like the idea. It could bring in more business and is a good way of getting my place better known in the whole cyber-space instead of just in this area and by word of mouth. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with.
It’s still cool up here at night and some days are a little chilly but the people are making reservations at my bed and breakfast better than I thought they would. With all of the job losses in the state, I was beginning to worry about my business this spring and summer.
I guess people are planning weekend getaways and vacations closer to home like they did last year. I just hope they keep telling others about my little piece of heaven here in the mountains. Well that’s what it is to me anyway.
I have heard so many people talk about how hard it is to get car loans these days. The banks just aren’t letting go of much of the money they got in their bail out package yet. Until they do, it’s tough to buy a new or especially a used car. Heaven help you if you don’t have absolutely outstanding credit too. You’re chances of getting a loan on a car just went in the can then. My question is this. Just how many of us have absolutely perfect credit? Not many that’s for sure.
Since the economy has done what it’s done, the reason for having less than perfect credit might be of little or no fault of your own either but they don’t consider that at all. I have found a possible solution that helped a friend of mine with get refinancing with nowgetloan.com. It not only lowered his monthly payment but also helped him possibly save a bit of his credit rating.
I was amazed at how easy the whole process was for him. All he had to do was fill out the application securely right online and has his answer a lot faster than he would have from a bank. Their applications are not as rigid as a banks either. They are sure worth checking into if you need a loan or refinancing.
