- Do most of the regular scheduled care maintenance. Talk to a mechanic you trust (not the dealer) about what needs to be done and when.
- Wash and wax the cars. Besides looking nice, it keeps the rust away
- Change the filter in your AC/Furnace at least every 3 months, check the owner's manual for specifics. I change ours at the change of the seasons.
- Paint the outside of your house as needed. Peeling paint is more than just an eyesore. It allows the weather in and causes rot. I know, I just had a bunch of trim on the outside of our house replaced and there was some underlying damage. So even more work had to be done which meant more $$$.
What am I leaving off? Bikes? Tools? Yup keep those in good working order. What else?
