Adding a new furry friend into your life can be fun and exciting until you notice that your favorite shoes have bite marks in them. If you've recently added a new puppy into your life or getting ready to, it's essential to protect your belongings to enjoy this excellent adventure fully.

Puppy-proof your home. 

Objects such as shoes, wires, and pillows can be a puppy's playground. Before committing to this addition to your family, it's essential to prepare your home to protect your things. It may require getting out of the habit of taking off your shoes at the door and start putting them inside a closet where the puppy can't access them. You may also want to consider hiding any exposed wires to reduce the risk of chewed up wires and broken electronics. Another area to be concerned about is curtains and pillows. During the youthful stage of your puppy, make it a point to keep curtains off the ground and pillows off of furniture. They can be expensive to replace, so for the time being consider putting them out of reach.

Start training.

As soon as your furry friend comes home, start the training process. Start with potty training, crate training, and simple commands. If you plan to enroll your dog to school to get professionally trained, he or she should already know how to sit, stay, and come. If you plan on fully training your pet yourself, then be sure to educate yourself on effective methods and fully commit to the process. It can be a long process, but it is definitely worth the overall investment.

Set boundaries.

The earlier you start setting boundaries, the sooner your puppy will practice them. If you do not want the puppy in certain parts of the house, put up a fence or start the habit of closing the doors. Be sure to enforce these boundaries as soon as possible and don’t let up on them no matter how adorable those puppy eyes are. 

Let your dog be a dog. 

Having a new dog in the home can take up a lot of time. In order to give your puppy an appropriate outlet for its energy, take it on regular walks, trips to the dog park, and set aside time to play. When you don't make time for your furry pal, it will find another way to let its energy out, and that usually results in something being chewed up. If you're away from your home for a large portion of the day, hire a dog walker or sitter to play with your puppy while you're gone.

Adding a new pup to your home can be exhausting in the beginning, but with the right tools and commitment, you’ll start enjoying its company. If you’re having problems training your puppy, contact a local dog training school and enroll them as soon as possible.

Appliances have a certain lifespan of use, and then, unfortunately, they tend to break down one way or another. Depending on the age of the appliance and the amount of the repair cost, you should make an informed decision as to what will be a good for your finances and your home.


So, when the fridge stops producing cold or the dryer stops drying things, you may go into panic mode and try to either buy a new appliance or call a repair person. Before you make a snap judgment, you should take a step back. It’s important to ask the question: 


Is it worth getting this repaired?


If you are able to get an estimate of how much the repairs will cost, this will give you a good place to start. This is the fastest way for you to get the answers that you need. If the life of the appliance is going to only be a few years, you may be better off investing your money in a new appliance. The cost of a repair can run somewhere around 20-30 percent of the cost of replacing the appliance completely.


Understand The Life Expectancy Of Each Appliance


Some appliances are meant to last for a decade, others will last for a shorter period of time. As a general rule of thumb, if your appliance is over 7 years old and breaks down, you should probably replace it rather than repair it. It will be a better investment in the long run. Some typical lifespans for appliances are:


  • Dishwasher 9 years
  • Freezer 13 years
  • Range 15 years
  • Dryer 13 years
  • Washing Machine 10 years


Before you replace your broken appliance, there are a few things you should understand. First, sometimes, it really isn’t broken. A plug could be loose or a circuit could have tripped. You would hate to spend the money on a new appliance rather than deal with a simple problem. Troubleshoot the problem yourself by taking a peek at the owner’s manual first.              


Pricing Appliances 


Once you have repair estimates, you should find out how much it will be to replace your appliance completely with a similar model. Make sure that you factor in things like the removal of the old appliance, the taxes, and the installation. By running the numbers, you’ll know if you can afford a new appliance or not compared to the repair costs. 


New Features


If you have been dreaming of a refrigerator with an ice maker, it may be a good decision for you to spring for a new model. If you love the features you have, you’ll want to either price similar units or do the repairs. Really, your budget and needs very much dictate your decision for new appliances. Consider the options and make the repair or replacement call based on your needs.
