There are really few people that I come into contact who didn’t sort of take it in the shorts financially with the pandemic.
While the stimulus checks easily helped, they couldn’t replace a lost task plus a large pay cut.
This is what our family faced when every one of us were all sent home to the safety of our cooling system at home. My wife’s task was simply eliminated within afternoons. That paycheck accounted for nearly 40 percent of our income. The zone controlled HVAC I enjoyed at the office was shut down as well. Fortunately, I was able to keep our task plus work remotely from home. However, that too came with a large pay split plus no occasion of bonus last year. Thankfully, our wife found some area time work she could do online from the cooling system of home. Still, every one of us actually had to dig deep in order to make ends meet. That meant so several cuts to so several areas of our household budget. Chief among those cuts were the cost of HVAC cooling throughout the broiling summer. Honestly, this change was well overdue as every one of us actually were wasteful when it came to HVAC cooling in our house. Still, it was a rude awakening to have a thermostat set in the low 78’s during the day. The people I was with and I all had fans on us as every one of us worked plus went to college from home. I have to say though that this was a nice thing given that every one of us won’t ever go back to the way every one of us used to use the cooling system in this house.
