As long as you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the government stimulus check that is being distributed to all eligible Americans. Under the new stimulus bill signed by President Biden, Americans can receive $1400 and an additional $1400 for each eligible dependent living in their home. Many families who have lost income due to the COVID 19 pandemic will use these checks to keep a roof over their head and put food on the table. But if you are still fortunate enough to be employed, and not in financial peril, we have some tips for you on how to best maximize your stimulus checks to get more things done around the home.
Invest in New Gardening and Yard Work Equipment
Is your lawn mower not working like it used to? Are your gardening tools rusted and out of date? This stimulus check is the perfect opportunity to upgrade your outdoor equipment. So if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing that new lawn mower, don’t hesitate to upgrade! By investing in these new tools, your yard will become the best on the block and motivate you more to keep your landscape well maintained. However, if you aren’t as comfortable making a big purchase with your stimulus check, you can use the money to make smaller upgrades such as a new vacuum or cleaning supplies. With the stimulus check, upgrading your home improvement tools is a great way to stimulate the economy and get more things done around your home.
Invest in Small Improvements Around your Home
Does your fence need a new coat of paint? Perhaps your carpet needs to be cleaned? The stimulus check is a great opportunity to make smaller improvements around your home that won’t require professional work. Something as simple as a new coat of paint or a polished wood floor will keep your house looking beautifully maintained and impress your neighbors. The provided stimulus check is a great way for you to get small things done around your home, without the cost of professional home improvement.
Upgrade your Home Office or Work Space
As work life has transitioned from an outside office to working from home, the stimulus check is a great way to upgrade your home office. Supplies such as computer monitors or other small electronics can help improve your productivity when working from home and keep your home office looking professional for all your zoom conferences and online meetings. In addition to upgrading your home office, the stimulus check can be used to purchase office supplies for work. Feel free to use the stimulus check to help you be more productive in both your personal and professional life.
