“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.” –Benjamin Franklin Today is the last day to file your taxes, so if you have not done them yet, take the time to either get them in the mail, or file for an extension. Meanwhile, if you are expecting a refund, take some time to think about what you will use it for. Maybe a project around that house that you have been wanting to get done? Maybe a down payment on that new (or new-to-you) car? Maybe paying off one of your student loans? There are a lot of options. Another thing to consider is getting your carpets professionally cleaned! Use a little bit of that refund and put it toward something that is frequently overlooked: a professional cleaning of your carpets. Regular professional cleaning is important for the maintenance and upkeep of your carpeting. Over time, dirt and debris build up in the carpet fibers, and a deep cleaning is important to get those things out, before they degrade the quality of the fibers. You can even splurge and get scotchguard protection to help prevent stains from forming the next time there is a spill.
