Have you received your COVID-19 stimulus money?
It's been reported that most Americans will have the money automatically deposited into their bank account by today (April 15).
And while the federal government has extended the tax filing deadline to July 15. If you're getting a refund, it's wise to file by today anyway rather than let Uncle Sam continue to hold on to your refund check interest free.
If you've gotten your stimulus money or tax refund, why not use your refund on something you'll truly enjoy for many years - build a new Tampa swimming pool, remodel your existing pool or create the Tampa outdoor living space you've always dreamed of?
Saving money for a Tampa outdoor kitchen, pool refurbishing, or new pool construction isn't easy. So, think of it this way: your tax refund is the result of a year of saving. You had money taken out of your paycheck every pay period, and now Uncle Sam is sending it back to you. That Uncle doesn’t pay interest, so it's not the ideal way to save, but it's still savings.
Now that you've got it, you can INVEST that savings in your swimming pool or outdoor living space. And, yes, it is an investment in many ways…
1) Invest in your home. The most obvious investment is financial - an awesome Tampa swimming pool and outdoor living space will increase the value of your home. But you're investing in much more than that...
2) Invest in your family. Hanging out and spending time together in your pool and outdoor living space is a great way to do family time. If you don’t have children at home, your pool and outdoor living are can be a special setting for some time alone with your spouse or fun with grandchildren and extended family.
3) Invest in your friends. An outdoor bar, outdoor seating area, outdoor kitchen or swimming pool are all awesome settings for entertaining. Imagine all the great times you could have and meaningful friendships you could build. You could even host events for your book club, church group, or whatever organizations you're involved with.
4) Invest in yourself. Are you busy and stressed sometimes? Do you ever find yourself tired and run down from all of the responsibilities you're juggling? We all need to rest and recharge our batteries to keep ourselves physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy. A beautiful, relaxing or inspiring outdoor living space can help you do this.
