A Great Software Program for Finances

I never used my computer for my personal finances. I just felt that it was safer to do it the old fashioned way, which was by hand or in person. Well, that changed when I saw a special on TV not long ago about how it is actually safer to handle most financial transactions online rather than the way I had been doing it, if it is handled the right way. One of the suggestions was to use a program like Quicken 2016, which I knew nothing about. I knew that it was software for finances, but that was the extent of my knowledge.

I wanted to find out more about it before I decided to use it though. I looked at a website that had a lot of information on Quicken as well as the prices for the current programs. I looked at all of the features, and I was amazed at the different things that it could do. I thought that online software like that was mainly for keeping track of an account, just like the register in my checkbook. However, it does so much more, plus that! That is why I decided to take the plunge and catch up with other people who have been using financial software programs for years.

I liked that I am able to set up a budget, and track it in different ways. I can track my spending patterns, set up recurring transactions, and export tax information when it comes to that time of year. I cannot believe how much easier a program like Quicken has made my life, mainly because I am so much more organized now with my finances. I had always been a little stressed when it comes to money, but I am not feeling that way anymore. I can finally relax thanks to Quicken!

I Imagine I Hear Termites at Night Even Though the Exterminator Assures Me They Are Gone

I imagine I can hear them chewing at night. Every little noise gets me going and gives me the creeps now. The pest control people told me they rid our house of the termite infestation. I discovered them eating through the basement door frame. I went to paint it and saw that the wood looked funny. When I poked at it with the paint scraper, it was falling apart. I thought it was rot, and my neighbor told me to call this place he knows that does termite removal in New York City. I was shocked, to say the least.

My neighbor asked me if I remembered all that remodeling they did last year on the one side of the house. I told him I did. He said it was not by choice but because of termites. We had a notice on our door that termites were found close by, and we thought it was just an ad. He said that it was an ad, but the termite notice was 100 percent factual. I have no idea why he never just come out and told us.

The damage was confined to the door and a little bit of the floor above it. The basement walls are poured concrete, so that was not a problem. One part of me knows that they are gone, but another part of me is thinking how they were eating our house and I did not even know about it. If our child was eating a cracker in her room at night, I would probably hear it now and think it was termites. I just do not like insects even though I know I’m outnumbered probably a million to one or more! It is going to take me some time to believe the termite exterminators got them all.
