Local Business Recommendations

Today on Savings Lifestyle Home, I shared a personal story about how Facebook saved us $2,000! In our experience, the big corporate office wanted to charge us an arm and a leg. The mark up on work is so high it's baffling when you get quotes from small businesses and see the vast difference! We're trying to support more local-based businesses and franchises.

So…we'd love your recommendations!

Who would you recommend locally to do various projects, and I'm not limiting your suggestions by any means. I'm thinking of Painters, Plumbers, Electricians, HVAC, Carpentry, Catering, Car Repairs, etc. In our case, the small business we used did have a staff, but he obviously had less overhead than a big corporate office. And, obviously the price was much better for us!

Please share recommendations on any/all small business that you feel has integrity, does quality work and is reliable. I firmly believe in quality over quantity and I'd love to start a resource for others in the Tri-State area to check if they have a small business need! And, the other plus is we'll be helping out business owners in the community which means helping the community in the long run!

Who's first??!!

We're have a similar discussion in Dayton today as well! If you want to go farther North for service, check it out!
