Convenience is important especially if you have a family with young children. For example, if your child has an accident and needs to be rushed to the emergency room it would be dangerous if you have to drive around looking for the closets hospital. Instead it would be beneficial l if you lived close to a hospital; therefore in case of an emergency you will be able to reach the hospital within minutes.
Being a frequent visitor
If you live in an area that is close to a supermarket, a hospital, a pharmacy, a hardware store etc. your life will become much easier. For example if you are in desperate need of paper towel, living close to a super market will enable you to get what you need within minutes. You could even save up on gas by walking to the supermarket instead of driving there. When you have easy access to places you are more likely to go there more often than you usually would and this could give you the title as ‘frequent customer’, which could entitle you to a discount. Frequently visiting a store will enable you to build a relationship with the staff which may even entitle you to a favor or two when you are in need of one. For example, if you take a trip to the hardware store because of a dent in your roof that needs immediate fixing, but you do not have enough money to make your purchase you could always ask if you could make the payment later.
If you are handy around the house, you could fix your broken cabinets and repair jammed doorways yourself but if the task at hand seems a bit risky such as mending a roof, it would be best to hire a professional. For example, hiring a slate roofing company would be the safer option than you yourself trying to fix the problem which may seem a bit complex to you.
Weekday mornings can be very hectic especially if you have children as you not only have to get yourself ready but you have to make sure they are ready too. As your children get older, they will not rely on you as much but when they are small you have to be the one to arrange everything for them from their transport to their lunch. Therefore when you are selecting a preschool for your child be sure you pick one that is close to where you work. This way, you will be saving a lot of time when picking and dropping your children off to school and in case of an emergency it will not take you very long to reach the school.
