Bella has her favorite brands but owes them no loyalty, but if a similar product from a different brand has a discount, that is the one she will buy, then she has no commitment whatsoever to brands, especially to groceries.
I consistently argued that the margin between what I spend while shopping and what Bella would spend on similar products would be smaller, but when that was tried and tested she made significant savings compared to our total price. Bella consulted me when looking for a whole-home air purifier. She said that her HVAC’s air purification help was not enough to help her achieve her desired air quality, so we researched several HVAC unit websites for whole-air purifiers until we found an enjoyable one within her budget. Bella also used a proper air filter and wanted to switch to a HEPA filter! On the other hand, I needed to consult an HVAC serviceman to get a professional view of why our energy bill was going up consistently. I knew it had to do with our HVAC unit, but I needed to figure out how to solve the problem. The HVAC professional came and took care of the entire replacement. She told me it required service and that I was using so much energy to heat the home because there were more than two leaks in the vents. Therefore, the unit had to run more to compensate for the lost heat. On top of duct sealing, they also needed duct cleaning. It must have been why even the air quality had declined, and I had also started thinking of ways to improve air purification. The expert also told me about smart HVAC that could save me energy.
